Pedestrian Accidents

It doesn’t matter how careful you are, drivers on the road aren’t paying attention. About 30% of crashes involve distracted driving. For pedestrians and bicyclists, the danger is real.

Pedestrian Injury Statistics

The U.S. Department of Transportation and the Governor’s Highway Safety Administration provide scary statistics:

  • A traffic accident causes pedestrian injury every 7.5 minutes
  • Every 1.3 hours a pedestrian is killed in a traffic accident
  • At 40 mph, a driver has an 85% chance of killing and a 15% chance of injuring a pedestrian
  • A driver going 20 mph has a 65% chance of injuring and a 5% chance of injuring a pedestrian

Pedestrian Injury Medical Bills

When a pedestrian is injured by a vehicle, it can lead to high medical bills. For a lot of people, even a trip to the ER is expensive. More serious injuries have ongoing medical treatment. Who should pay for that? It can all be confusing and complicated. A pedestrian accident lawyer can help you understand your options.

Pedestrian Hit And Run Injury

Even if a pedestrian is injured by a hit and run driver, they may still be able to get help. In some cases, there may be a video of the incident or driver. But, time is of the essence. In other situations, there is still insurance available to cover you. Or, the state of Pennsylvania has a fund to help uninsured victims.

When To Call A Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

If you are hit by a vehicle, get medical help. Then, call an injury lawyer. Even if the doctor doesn’t find an injury right away, a lawyer can help you protect your rights, just in case.
