With pedestrian accidents, people can jump to conclusions assuming that the pedestrian was either in a crosswalk, or they're at fault. As important as that detail is, it's crucial to understand the exact circumstances.

For instance, there could be extenuating factors such as alcohol to consider. Not long ago, I handled a fatal pedestrian accident were an establishment illegally over-served someone to the point they wandered onto a freeway. That's a lot different than someone just being reckless crossing traffic lanes. Alternatively, regardless of who has the right-of-way, drivers that can see and reasonably avoid someone have a responsibility to do so. Was this driver in a position to avoid the accident, or was there no way to see the victim in time? If nothing else, steps should be taken to ensure professionals are asking these questions and getting clear answers.
