Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Some groups of pedestrians are at a greater risk of accidents than others. Males are the most susceptible to pedestrian accidents, and teenagers are at the most significant risk for injuries. Statistically, other vulnerable groups include:
Intoxicated people; and
Drivers who neglect their environment, traffic laws, and traffic signals cause pedestrian accidents. Some common driver-related causes of pedestrian accidents are:
Distracted driving, such as talking on the phone, texting, eating, and holding intense conversations with passengers;
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
Failing to stop or yield at intersections or crosswalks;
Driving inappropriately for weather conditions;
Making left-hand turns into pedestrians; and
Backing-up into pedestrians.
Pedestrians may also contribute to accidents. Distracted walking is now listed as a prevalent problem by the National Safety Council. Often distracted walking injuries are in relation to cell phone talking and texting.
Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Pedestrians can suffer any number of catastrophic injuries in a vehicle collision. They have none of the safety advantages a car offers its passengers and are totally exposed to the accident impact. Injuries in a pedestrian accident can include:
Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury;
Spinal cord injuries, including complete or incomplete paralysis;
Broken bones and fractures;
Cuts and amputations;
Mental and emotional trauma; and
These injuries can take months or years to heal properly. The long-term effects can devastate an accident victim and their family. While compensation cannot bring back a lost loved one or repair the damage of a pedestrian accident, it can improve the level of care a victim receives and replace lost income on which a family relied.
