We often think of pedestrian accidents only happening in big cities and congested urban areas. However, the truth of the matter is, they can happen anywhere. When drivers get behind the wheel after drinking or engage in distracting behaviors like texting while driving, they’re putting their own lives and the lives of others at great risk.
It’s important for injury victims and their family members to know that they do have legal options. Any crash involving a pedestrian and a motor vehicle can be devastating. After any type of pedestrian accident caused by a driver’s dangerous, negligent, or distracted actions, it’s essential to speak with a skilled personal injury lawyer. Scott Law Firm is here for you during this time.
Nationwide Pedestrian Statistics
Pedestrians, along with cyclists and motorcycle riders, are some of the most vulnerable roadway users. They don’t have airbags, seat belts, or steel cages to protect them from the impact of cars and trucks. Due to preventable causes, such as distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and other forms of driver carelessness and recklessness, we’re seeing an increase in crashes for vulnerable roadway users like pedestrians.
According to the NHTSA:
- 7,450 pedestrians died in traffic or non-traffic incidents in 2017
- The latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that in 2018 6,075 pedestrians died in traffic crashes occurring on public roads
- 2018 most pedestrian traffic deaths occurred in urban settings (79%), on the open road (74%) vs. intersections (25%), and at night (76%)
- The largest number of pedestrian deaths occur on Saturdays (1,031), and the majority of these deaths happen at night (837)
