Pedestrian Accident Statistics
Pedestrians are more vulnerable to the dangers on the roadway than a passenger of a private vehicle. Unlike passengers of private cars with airbags and seat belts to protect them, pedestrians do not have any protection that can help them avoid sustaining fatal injuries.
According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, approximately 6,227 pedestrians were killed in the U.S. back in 2018, a 250 increase from the previous year.
Common injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents are head trauma like concussions or brain bleeds, traumatic brain injuries, and many other debilitating injuries. Many pedestrian accident injuries can result in either functional impairments or long-term conditions.
Pedestrian accidents are typically caused by distracted driving, speeding, intoxicated drivers, and drivers failing to yield the right of way.
