When a pedestrian suffers personal injuries or wrongful death in a motor vehicle accident, his or her family also suffers. Our pedestrian accident lawyers at the Trapani Law Firm understand this.

CDC Data: In 2013, 4,735 pedestrians suffered wrongful deaths in traffic crashes in the United States. That averages out to one pedestrian accident related wrongful death every 2 hours.

[April 2023 Data Update] As years went on, the problem got even worse. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the number of pedestrians killed in accidents involving a motor vehicle, be it a car, van, truck, or otherwise, almost doubled to 7,000 people – that’s about one fatality every 75 minutes!

Morover, every sixth person who died in such a crashe in 2020 was a pedestrian. [/Update]

More than 150,000 pedestrians were treated for personal injuries in emergency hospital departments in 2013. Additionally, pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger vehicle occupants to suffer a wrongful death in a car crash on each trip.

Pedestrian accidents can happen for many reasons. Traffic violations, such as careless driving or speeding, as well as distracted driving caused by the use of cell phones are commonly the cause of such tragic pedestrian accidents.
