Fatal Pedestrian Accident Statistics
In the United States, pedestrian accidents are one of the most deadly types of traffic accidents. This is primarily because pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to fatal injuries. After all, they do not have any form of protection in an accident.
As reported by the Governors Highway Safety Association, pedestrian fatalities in the United States have increased by 27 percent between 2007 and 2016. In contrast, other traffic-related deaths have decreased by 14 percent during the same period.
When comparing California to other states, statistics show that pedestrians are particularly vulnerable in the Golden State. In California, 893 pedestrians were killed, and 14,000 pedestrians were injured on the roads in 2018. Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include careless driving, excessive speeding, and drivers failing to yield to pedestrians. When faced with a situation like this, it is critical to seek the advice of an experienced attorney.
