Dangers to Pedestrians

When you travel on foot in an urban or suburban area, you may encounter many dangers along the way. Between the flow of traffic and the presence of building renovation and construction projects, there are a host of hazards that could cause a pedestrian to suffer injury. In instances where the negligent actions of an individual or company result in an accident that causes harm, it may be both possible and appropriate to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.

Potential Hazards to Pedestrians

Municipalities, companies, and motorists each bear a different set of responsibilities with regard to pedestrian safety, but failures on the part of any can be disastrous. While it is true that pedestrians should exercise reasonable caution at all times, it would be simply impossible to account for all of the actions of other parties. Possible hazards include:

  • Lack of warning signs
  • Malfunctioning traffic lights
  • Negligent driving
  • Malfunctioning construction equipment
  • Crane collapse
  • Scaffolding collapse
  • Snow or ice-covered sidewalks not properly treated
