In 2009 there was almost the same number of pedestrian deaths as there were motorcycle deaths (around 4000-4500). Pedestrians often suffer some of the worst damage when involved in a crash with another vehicle. Pedestrians are the most vulnerable subjects to injury and severe impairment due to the lack of physical protection, safety measures and the natural frailty of our human bodies.
Our Attorneys Will Get You the Compensation You Deserve
- Do you know what you are entitled to when you’ve been involved in a pedestrian accident through no fault of your own?

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents Resulting in Lawsuits
There are many different causes for pedestrian accidents, but most involve vehicle collisions with bystanders. Some of the more common bystander collision situations occur when:
- A driver is distracted, confused or preoccupied
- Drivers fail to yield
- Drivers fail to give right of way to pedestrians
- Drivers lose control of the vehicle due to speeding, lane changes and poor weather conditions
- Drivers disobey traffic signals
- Drivers fail to utilize headlights and fog lights when conditions require to do so
Vehicle-pedestrian collisions create terrible accident scenes where fatalities are frequent. Survivors have a long road to recovery and incur large medical bills in the process, not to mention the pain and disruption of normal life activities.
