Map of the Area
After pedestrian accidents like this, it’s always important to consider where the pedestrian was in relation to the roadway and whether or not the driver could have avoided them. At least as far as police are concerned, the driver behaved egregiously enough to warrant a citation. That said, I see many victims and families rely on police reports to hold an at-fault driver accountable only to find they lack the evidence needed to support the claim. Even when reports seem clear, it’s important those affected by an accident have an experienced private investigator gather tangible evidence as soon as possible to help tell their side of the story.
