On the daily, people usually drive their personal cars wherever they need to go. Some may choose public transportation or a rideshare. Others like to walk. Walking is a great way to get your steps in for exercise as well as no polluting with carbon emissions. Walking can help calm you throughout the day. However, not everyone is into walking. Meaning, drivers, even though they have been sharing the road with pedestrians for decades are still not accustomed to watching out for those who decide to walk. As a pedestrian you have rights and our Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in San Mateo at Allegiance Law want you to know what they are:
Holding a driver liable for your injuries is harder than you think. Unless, for example, it is something obvious like a car driving up on to a sidewalk and hitting you. This happened near a San Mateo high school where a teacher and several students were injured after a car drove up onto the sidewalk hitting them. There is no known cause for why the driver did that, but if the driver was in control of the car and was distracted or under the influence when the car is at fault.
