Protecting Yourself as a Pedestrian
As a pedestrian, there are a few steps you can take to protect yourself:
- Only cross streets at marked crosswalks or intersections, if possible.
- Always obey pedestrian signals, such as WALK/DON’T WALK signs.
- Look left, right, and then left again before crossing – even if you have a WALK signal.
- Be careful to watch for turning vehicles.
- Even if you are crossing lawfully, never assume that a driver can see you. Always be aware.
- If you’re walking at night, wear reflective clothing and carry a flashlight. Make sure you’re visible.
- In parking lots and when walking behind cars in driveways, listen for motor sounds and watch for backup lights. Take caution whenever you walk behind a vehicle.
- Do not wear headphones or talk on the phone while crossing a street or parking lot.
Unfortunately, even when we are careful, another person’s carelessness can cause us harm. If you were injured through no fault of your own, The Lancione Law Firm can help. Put our third-generation Ohio pedestrian accident lawyer on your side and rest assured that we will seek the fair and complete compensation you need.
