Pedestrian vs. Motorist Cases

According to the LA Times, California has the highest pedestrian accident fatality rate in the United States. In one year, approximately 23% of all vehicle fatalities in the state involved a pedestrian. The national average is 11%. Pedestrian death and injury rates are generally higher in urban areas. Many of these accidents can be blamed on distracted, reckless, or intoxicated driving.

Motorists have the responsibility to watch out for pedestrians. This includes people in crosswalks, on sidewalks, on the side of the road, or anywhere near a roadway. In most cases, pedestrians have the right of way, and drivers are required to yield.

Pedestrians are put at extreme risk when drivers fail to obey traffic signals or when they are distracted. Intoxicated or exhausted drivers lack the reflexes needed to avoid a pedestrian, which can lead to a devastating collision.

Common pedestrian accident injuries:
  • Spinal fractures
  • Brain damage
  • Broken limbs
  • Organ damage
  • Paralysis
  • Road rash

The National Highway Safety Administration claims that 40% of all pedestrian injuries result from contact with a vehicle. Another 32% of injuries are due to contact with the ground, and 26% are because of contact with another object, such as a signpost or fence.
