Kudos to all the active folks out there. Walking or running does improve one’s sense of health and well-being. No one expects the unexpected…the inattentive driver who texts while driving or backs without looking. Electric cars may unintentionally compound the situation with a 5000-pound vehicle silently maneuvering through parking lots.
California law is clear…very clear. Every driver of a motor vehicle must keep a proper lookout and pay attention to the roadway, including pedestrians. Johnson v. Johnson (1948) 84 Cal. App 2 nd 271.
Debra A. Newby has helped a multitude of injured pedestrians obtain the justice and closure they deserve. An avid walker and hiker herself, she intuitively understands the dynamics of a motor vehicle versus pedestrian injury.
