Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Pedestrian accidents are more likely than other types of accidents to involve death given how unprotected pedestrians are when compared to, for example, an accident involving two motor vehicles where both sides to the crash have not only seatbelts and airbags to protect them but a multi-ton vehicle as well.

Approximately 110,000 pedestrians are injured every year in the U.S. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 6,227 pedestrians were killed in 2018, which had a 250 increase from the previous year.

California is one of the leading states when it comes to pedestrian accident cases. The pedestrian fatality rate in California is almost 25% higher than the national average. In 2018, 893 pedestrians were killed while 14,000 people were injured in California alone. Pedestrian accidents are typically caused by distracted driving, speeding, intoxicated drivers, and drivers failing to yield the right way.

In California, there exists a legal concept known as the statute of limitations. According to California law, you must file a pedestrian accident lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident.
