The Results Of Pedestrian Accidents

 Pedestrians share the same streets frequented by motor vehicles. This leads to high accident rates, not only in busy cities such as Los Angeles and San Diego, but also in smaller communities such as Palm Springs. Whether walking, jogging, running, skateboarding, rollerblading, or even using a wheelchair or walker, pedestrians face danger when they cross the street at a crosswalk or on the street.

National statistics indicate that a pedestrian is 1.5 times more likely to be killed in a traffic accident than a driver or occupant of a motor vehicle. Pedestrian accidents occur every two hours on the average, and are particularly detrimental to people over 65 and children between 5 and 15. This is the number one cause of death among children of this age group.

Pedestrians who survive accidents are likely to suffer more traumatic injuries than someone riding in any type of vehicle, even a bicycle.

What Contributes To Pedestrian Accidents

While some accidents occur because a pedestrian becomes distracted, many accidents result from driver error or distraction:

  • Talking or texting and cell phones
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Fatigue
  • Running red lights
  • Running stop signs

In California, pedestrians have the right-of-way when they are in designated crosswalks and unmarked walkways. The state uses comparative negligence to assign blame in pedestrian accidents and other legal matters. Even if a pedestrian was jaywalking or distracted and bears some blame for his injuries, the driver may be at fault as well.
