Pedestrian Traffic Accident Statistics

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that 12 pedestrians are killed every day in traffic collisions, and two-thirds of these deaths occur in urban areas. Texas has one of the highest rates of pedestrian fatalities, alongside Florida and California. US hospitals record as many as 70,000 pedestrian injuries each year, only a fraction of which are reported to police. These astounding rates show that walkers, joggers, and motorists alike must take the risk of traffic accidents seriously.

What to Do in the Event of a Pedestrian Accident

Car accidents involving pedestrians are traumatic for everyone involved. As a driver, you may be feeling shame, fear, and confusion about what to do next, even if you are not at fault. Pedestrians may be facing exorbitant medical costs and a long road to recovery. It is essential that you contact an attorney to  understand fault, responsibility, and how damages will be awarded. Avoid speaking with the driver or pedestrian, including their attorney or insurance company, until you have secured your representation. Your physical, mental, and financial health and security may depend on it.

What Causes Car Accidents Involving Pedestrians?

  • Impaired driver visibility in parking lots
  • Reckless or negligent behavior at crosswalks and Intersections
  • Vehicles backing into roads and across sidewalks
  • Driver and pedestrian intoxication
  • Roadside work or disabled vehicles on the highway

Who is at Fault in a Car and Pedestrian Accident?

This is the question a court will seek to answer in the event of a lawsuit. Fault is determined by degrees of negligence. Texas law allows for negligence to be distributed between all parties involved. Both motorists and pedestrians can be found fully or partially negligent, or without fault. For example, a driver can be found 85% at fault, with the pedestrian being 15% at fault. This means that if you’ve been injured, any negligence on your part can affect the value of your claim. If a pedestrian crosses against a red light and is struck by a speeding car, both parties carry blame and damages will be awarded accordingly.
