Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Unfortunately, there are pedestrian accidents every day. Sometimes, it’s negligent drivers who are simply not paying attention. Other times, it’s people who are not following traffic laws. Either way, pedestrians are injured or killed every day on our roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) there were over 6,000 pedestrian deaths in the U.S. in 2019.

A Pedestrian accident is an accident involving someone who is walking, jogging, or bicycling who is struck by someone operating a car, bus, truck, or other mode of transportation. Pedestrian accidents are on the rise across the United States.

Common pedestrian accidents can include:

  • Crosswalk accidents
  • Distracted drivers
  • Drunk drivers
  • Parking lot accidents
  • Intersection accidents
  • Drivers failing to yield
  • Drivers running red lights or stop signs

Statistics show that on average, one pedestrian is injured by a vehicle every 8 minutes, and one pedestrian dies due to injuries from a vehicle every 120 minutes. In addition, alcohol was involved in 48 percent of the traffic crashes that resulted in pedestrian fatalities.

A pedestrian accident can cause serious physical and emotional injuries, including the stress and anxiety, pain, and suffering. You may face mounting medical expenses, lost time from work and other related expenses, and to the worst extent – death.
