Triangle warning sign with exclamation point. Forewarn, caution, attention.

Modern social media and phones have infected every part of modern life. No matter where you are or where you go you will always see people enamored by their handheld electronics. The issue seems to be even more so in Southern California, where the chance of hitting a texter seems to increase every day. There are even considerable concerns about drivers texting when they should be paying attention to the road. Altogether, these issues are drivers’ worst nightmares– what happens if you strike someone that should have otherwise been paying attention?

Experts Can Sift Through the Various Factors to Determine Fault for the Pedestrian Accident

Such answers are not always so clear cut. There are many factors at play, and some are out of your control. This can include the walker’s position on the road or sidewalk, if they were crossing in a no-crossing zone, weather and lighting conditions, local laws, and other considerations. The complex picture is not one that a simple driver wants to deal with.
