Pedestrian Auto Accident Attorneys

Pedestrian accidents involving car collisions are all too common. The outcomes of these types of accidents can be tragic and devastating when victims are seriously injured or possibly even killed as a result of the impact from the vehicle. Pedestrian accidents appear to be more common in highly congested areas such as big cities with many intersections and cars on the road. With the increased volume the chances of one coming in contact with the other are greatly multiplied.

Why Pedestrians Accidents Occur

Pedestrian accidents can happen as a result of a number of reasons. Drivers these days are increasingly more distracted by their phones, GPS devices and other sophisticated features inside their cars. Some examples of pedestrian accident cases include:

  • Alcohol related accidents where the driver was intoxicated and driving drunk
  • Pedestrians hit at crosswalks while crossing the street and cars fail to stop
  • Pedestrians hit when getting out of a vehicle
  • Pedestrians hit inside of a parking lot while walking
  • Pedestrians hit by cars traveling in parking lots and are going too fast
  • Pedestrians hit while the guilty party is in reverse, cars that are backing up
  • Pedestrians hit due to excessive speeding and any other reason that a pedestrian is hit due to negligence of the guilty party’s failure to abide by traffic laws

The Dangers of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians have a greater than 50% chance of dying when involved in an accident with a motor vehicle. The human body is no match for a 3000 plus pound moving object. Most pedestrian auto accidents occur between three and four in the afternoon, a high risk time for children coming home from school. About one fifth of deaths to children ages 5 to 9 are the result of being hit by a car.
