While more people every day are taking to walking as a convenient and healthy
way to get from point A to point B, there is always some degree of risk
to pedestrians. Every year in the U.S., nearly 5,000 pedestrians are killed in
motor vehicle-related accidents, according to statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety
In 2012 alone, over 76,000 people suffered injuries after being hit by
cars or trucks. These statistics do not even take into account the many
thousands of additional injuries sustained by pedestrians in other types
of accidents not involving cars, including improperly maintained sidewalks
or parking lots, debris from construction sites, and other dangerous conditions.

Determining the Cause of Your Pedestrian Accident
Unfortunately, most pedestrian accidents are preventable. While pedestrians
aren’t always blameless, most of these accidents can be attributed
to negligence on the part of a driver.
Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- The driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- The driver ran through a red light or stop sign
- The driver turned through a crosswalk without looking
- The driver was distracted (i.e. texting while driving)
- The driver failed to look for pedestrians while backing up
- The driver was driving too fast in a residential area
