Boston Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians are out and about on the streets of Boston on a daily basis. There are over 600,000 people who call our city home in addition to the thousands of tourists that visit throughout the year. This means that you cannot go anywhere in the city without encountering a large number of pedestrians. While there are crosswalks and traffic signals in place, not all pedestrian accidents can be prevented. Sometimes accidents happen regardless of how careful everyone involved has tried to be. Other times, however, the driver of the vehicle cause the accident through their own recklessness or inattention.
Pedestrian accidents in which a driver is at fault can lead to a legal action against the driver for negligence. In such actions, the pedestrian has the right to recover for injuries and losses that they sustained in the accident.
