Pedestrian accidents resulting in serious injury or even death occur frequently throughout the United States. Each year, approximately 5,000 pedestrians are killed and approximately 64,000 more are injured when struck by motor vehicles. Pedestrian accidents constitute the second largest category of deaths by motor vehicle each year.
Contributing factors to pedestrian accidents include:
- Inattentive drivers
- Failure to observe right-of-way to pedestrians at crosswalks
- Driver’s disregard of traffic control devices
As a result of your pedestrian accident, you may have sustained medical expenses, lost income, a reduction in your earning capacity, rehabilitation expenses as well as pain and suffering.
Many accidents are the result of multiple factors. An early and thorough investigation of the facts of your accident is necessary in order for you and your family to recover what is due to you.
