pedestrian vs auto accidents


Pedestrians are without question the most vulnerable users of our public roadways. When walking on sidewalks, through intersections, or near construction sites and work zones, pedestrians face numerous risks of suffering severe and lasting injuries. 

Pedestrian accidents can involve any number of underlying causes and forms of negligence. Some of the most common include accidents and injuries caused by:

  • Car accidents involving reckless driving or speeding
  • Districted driving / texting while driving
  • Failure to yield right of way to a pedestrian
  • Failure to stop at a stop sign
  • Running a red light
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Hazardous conditions on someone’s property / walkway
  • Slip and fall accidents on sidewalks or storefronts
  • Falls or falling objects on construction sites

These and other types of accidents can result in many types of injuries, including fractures, sprains, concussions or traumatic brain injuries, and neck and back injuries. Because pedestrians have little protection to shield them from severe harm, they also face the risk of suffering catastrophic injuries that result in long-term if not life-long limitations and setbacks.
