Car-Pedestrian Accidents

Car-Pedestrian Car Accidents

According to statistics provided by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), nearly 50 pedestrians are fatally injured each year after being struck by vehicles in Massachusetts alone. Nationwide, more than 4,000 individuals are killed following a car-pedestrian accident. Pedestrian accidents are unfortunately becoming more and more common in the Commonwealth, where busy streets are congested with foot, vehicular, train, bus, and truck traffic. The area is also constantly buzzing with college students and people from all walks of life enjoying the Greater Boston area. This hectic atmosphere, where distractions run abound, combine to create a high risk for car-pedestrian accidents.

High Percentage Of Car-Pedestrian Injuries And Fatalities

According to the Massachusetts Office of Public Safety and Security, nearly 25% of all car crash related deaths in the state involve pedestrians. Further, serious injuries, which are often debilitating to victims and their families, are very prevalent. These include broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, burns, scars, severe soft-tissue injuries, neck and back injuries, and many others. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), a pedestrian injury occurs once every 8 minutes.

Greater Boston Is Particularly Risky

In a study recently launched by the Boston Public Health Commission, titled "Walk This Way," it was determined that there are around 2 million pedestrians walking around Boston daily. The high volume of vehicular and pedestrian traffic creates an increased risk of pedestrian accidents. Incredibly, according to the BPHC, there are 3 pedestrian accidents each day in metro Boston. These accidents are often fatal and/or cause severe personal injuries, where medical bills pile up quickly, wages are lost for an extended period of time, you are left suffering in pain, and you can no longer enjoy daily activities. Further, your family can be left with little income and staggering bills if the insurance companies do not give you your deserved compensation.

Most Pedestrian Accidents Are Caused By Driver's Negligence

The vast majority of car-pedestrian accidents are the result of a driver's negligence. There are numerous factors that can point to a driver's negligence, but some common problems include:

  • Ignoring traffic laws and disregarding road signs, traffic lights, crosswalks, "walk" signals, pedestrian right-of-ways, and others
  • Texting and/or talking on a cellphone while driving
  • Speeding, failing to yield to pedestrians, or simply not paying attention to the road
  • Driving while overly fatigued or dozing off
