Pedestrian Injuries

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 4,280 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States, and another 70,000 pedestrians were injured in 2011. On average, there is one crash-related pedestrian death every 2 hours in the United States, and a pedestrian injury occurs every 8 minutes. A CDC study found that pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger vehicle occupants to be killed in a car crash.

Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are often caused by the failure of a motor vehicle driver to keep a proper lookout for walkers and runners. These accidents take place despite the caution generally exercised by pedestrians walking on or near roadways. Pedestrian accidents involving motor vehicles, motorcycles and trucks can result in catastrophic injury or death because the pedestrian is unprotected from the violent impact.

It is important that you contact an attorney immediately after an accident occurs. Insurance companies for the negligent drivers usually rush to get pedestrian accident victims to sign settlement documents immediately after a collision occurs. It is important to investigate the facts of the accident and learn the full extent of the injuries before agreeing to any settlement.
