Pedestrian Vehicular Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 60,000 pedestrians were injured in traffic accidents in 2006. Of those hit, many were severely injured and fatally wounded. Pedestrian vehicular accidents are some of the most traumatic personal injury accidents that can occur and are most often a direct result of negligence on the part of the driver.

Most pedestrian vehicular accidents are caused by:

  • Driver mistakes/error- Speeding, failure to stop and yield right of way, and disobeying general rules of driving are just some of the mistakes that can lead to these types of accidents.
  • Inclement weather- Rain, snow, slick street surfaces, and even high winds can make driving even more difficult and accidents more likely to occur.
  • Distractions- Cell phones, talking to passengers, applying make-up, and radios are just some of the ways in which drivers can be distracted from paying attention to the road while driving.
  • Intoxication- Intoxication accidents and pedestrian vehicular accidents often share similarities, including intoxication as a cause. Alcohol, drugs, and chemicals are often contributing factors in car accidents with pedestrians.
