5 FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE A PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT
Distracted driving includes a range of activities while driving—even eating. Drivers can’t text while driving according to Idaho state law, but experienced drivers can talk on the phone legally in most Idaho cities, as of 2018. Even if an activity doesn’t have a specific law against it, though, Idaho police can use their judgment to cite distracted drivers with various traffic offenses."
According to the FBI, the year 2010 saw over 1.41 million drivers arrested for drunk driving in the US. With statistics like this, you don’t want to leave a Breathalyzer test to chance. Request the police to perform a test on the drunk driver, in order to solidify your case."
Were you hit by someone driving past the speed limit? Then you could hold him or her liable for your resulting injuries. Your personal injury attorney can help you in this regard."
Failing to yield or stop at an intersection is one way that drivers cause pedestrian accidents."
Failing to look to make sure a crosswalk is clear before turning could also cause an accident for which the driver could be found at fault."
* While these are not the only types of accidents that a driver can face on the road, they are very common and often result in serious injury.
WHO IS TO BLAME?
Reckless or inattentive drivers are clearly in the wrong.
Fault is divided proportionally according to Idaho law, since Idaho is a comparative liability state.
One piece of good news is that the law gives you the right to receive full compensation from the driver who was at fault for your injuries.
