Helping Protect the Rights of Pedestrians Injured in Traffic Accidents

Pedestrian accidents claim the lives of thousands of people each year, and thousands more pedestrians are injured. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2010 alone, 4,280 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States, and another 70,000 pedestrians were injured by a motorist. In fact, pedestrians are among the most vulnerable users of America’s roadways, with pedestrians 1.5 times more likely than motorists and passengers to be killed in an auto accident.

According to Metro Police, Las Vegas pedestrian accidents are on the rise, with pedestrian accidents seeing an 80 percent increase in 2012. Clark County saw 42 pedestrian fatalities in 2012 alone.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Like auto accidents, pedestrian accidents can be attributed to a number of causes, many of which include driver negligence. Some of the most common driving errors that contribute to pedestrian accidents include:

  • Disregarding crosswalks
  • Disregarding traffic controls and signals
  • Failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Passing a school bus
  • Speeding

Financial Compensation for Pedestrian Accidents

Since pedestrians – like bicyclists – lack protection, they often suffer serious injuries and even death if they are struck by a motor vehicle. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
