Pedestrian Accidents

A recent study showed that there are approximately 1,000 pedestrian accident fatalities in the United States each year, with thousands more suffering minor to serious injuries. Pedestrians struck by a motor vehicle may often have permanent or temporary injuries and/or disabilities, and some even result in death. There are several factors that can contribute to a pedestrian accident:

  • Driver error
  • Weather conditions
  • Road conditions
  • Traffic patterns
  • Behaviors of other drivers
  • Poorly marked crosswalks
  • Unfamiliarity with area
