What is a Pedestrian Accident?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defines pedestrians as people involved in traffic crashes who at the time were either walking, running, jogging, hiking, sitting, or lying down. In a report about pedestrian fatalities compiled by that agency, in 2013 alone about 4,735 pedestrians were killed in a traffic crash. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pedestrians most at risk for traffic crashes are adults 65 years and older, and children under the age of 14. Pedestrian accidents could lead to the loss of loved ones, and or permanent bodily and emotional injuries that would require life-long medical care,

The following are some common causes of pedestrian accidents:

  • Drivers and/or pedestrians who consume alcohol to the point of being alcohol-impaired.
  • Vehicles operating at a high speed.
  • Settings with low visibility, such as night time.
  • Pedestrians crossing the street at non-designated crosswalks or intersections.
  • Travel in congested urban areas as opposed to more spread out places.

Investigating Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accident cases are unique and could be difficult to litigate without professional personal injury attorneys experienced in traffic accident cases. Our team begins these cases by investigating who is at fault for a collision, the time sensitivity of a case, as well as the dynamics of the collision. Time is particularly important in an accident involving a pedestrian.

Your attorney should investigate the scene of the incident as soon as possible to collect evidence before it becomes compromised or destroyed. Depending on the circumstance of the pedestrian accident, there might also be multiple parties liable, such the operator of the vehicle involved, the party responsible for the maintenance of the premises where the accident occurred, and or even the pedestrian.
