Fatal Pedestrian Accident Statistics

According to a Governors Highway Safety Association report, 7,485 pedestrians were killed in vehicle collisions in 2021, a record high for the last 40 years.

There were 8.6% of pedestrian deaths due to speeding in 2020, an increase from 7.2% in 2019. Pedestrian safety depends heavily on speed. With a vehicle speed of 58 mph, pedestrian deaths increase exponentially from 10% to 90%.

Tragic outcomes often result from pedestrian accidents. An accident between two vehicles would leave pedestrians unprotected and at risk of serious injury.

Accidents involving pedestrians are one of the most common causes of injury and death on American roads. In car accidents, pedestrians are historically the most vulnerable.

It is important for pedestrians to always walk on the sidewalks, avoid drinking or using drugs, and cross parking lots and driveways with caution. This reduces their risk of being injured in such collisions.

What Should I Do After Being Involved in an Accident?

Ensure that law enforcement arrives at the scene and files a report. During an interview at the location of the accident, it is essential that you tell the truth about what you saw and experienced. Whenever you speak, try not to make assumptions about unfamiliar things. Anxiety and shock may cause accident victims to apologize profusely, even if they were not at fault. Insurance companies may take advantage of this act of kindness to avoid paying out on a claim.
