Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Before you sign anything, get a free consultation about your legal rights to compensation. If the pedestrian accident injury could have been avoided, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for your medical bills, your lost wages, any related expenses, and pain & suffering. If you waive your rights, you may be leaving money on the table for the insurance company to keep.

Common injuries in a pedestrian accident include:

In the worst cases, a pedestrian accident can end in wrongful death.

Pedestrian Accidents from Distracted Driving

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation reports that pedestrian fatalities are increased on an annual basis, and experts are blaming the use of smartphones. Nearly 95% of drivers nationwide own a phone, with upwards of 70% of them owning a smartphone. Distracted driving is the public health hazard of this generation, much like drunk driving was at its peak decades ago.

Our accident investigators are equipped to get answers about why you were hit by a car, what led to the collision, and who was at fault. These are the answers that will determine whether you will be able to pay for medical care, lost wages, and other losses.

Keeping Your Children Safe

Per Safe Kids, pedestrian injuries are the 5th leading cause of injury-related deaths for children 5 to 19. Parents need to teach their children safe pedestrian habits to help protect them when they are walking to and from various locations. Drivers have a duty of care to avoid injuring pedestrians; however, drivers are not always paying attention to the road, much less to children and pedestrians.

To keep your children safe and avoid pedestrian accidents, teach your children to:

  • Make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. If the driver is not looking at you, do not cross the road.
  • Look all ways before crossing the street. Look left, right, then left again. Keep looking in all directions as you cross the street.
  • Do not wear headphones when walking, especially when crossing a street.
  • Do not use electronics when walking and crossing a street.
  • Cross the road at marked crosswalks when possible. If there are no crosswalks, cross at intersections with traffic signals.
  • Use sidewalks or walking paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as safely possible.

Each child is different; however, most children who are under the age of 10 do not have the ability to judge speed and distance. Therefore, parents should accompany children under 10 when walking and crossing the road. Always set a good example when crossing the road and walking by avoiding the use of electronics, always looking before crossing the road, and paying attention.

Review the information in the interactive graphic provided by Safe Kids with your children and use the Child Pedestrian Safety Curriculum provided by the NHTSA to protect your children from pedestrian accidents.
