How Pedestrian Accidents are Different

Pedestrian accidents are by their very nature extremely dangerous and frequently result in severe injuries or death. The statistics for pedestrian accidents paint a clear picture:

  • In 2015 alone, there were over 4000 pedestrian-vehicle crashes in the state of Pennsylvania.
  • In 2015, 153 pedestrians were killed in a traffic-related accident in PA
  • Pedestrians make up about 12.8% of all traffic crash deaths in PA
  • Approximately every 9 minutes, a pedestrian is killed in an accident in the U.S.

Navigating Insurance Companies in a Pedestrian Accident

Make sure that as soon as you are able to contact an attorney for advice on navigating the pedestrian accident injury process, that you do so BEFORE speaking with the insurance companies. Often the insurance company will try to talk you into settling for lower compensation than what they know you deserve.

Make sure not to admit fault or sign anything before talking with your pedestrian injury lawyer. We are highly skilled at navigating the post- accident compensation process and are not afraid to take on the insurance companies who are trying to avoid paying you your full settlement.

Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault in a Car Pedestrian Accident?

While pedestrians may have the right of way on the road, it doesn’t mean that a motor vehicle is always at fault in the event of a car pedestrian accident. Some of the most common situations where a pedestrian can be found at fault for an accident are:

  • A pedestrian was crossing against the traffic signal
  • A pedestrian was crossing the road outside a crosswalk
  • A pedestrian was walking where pedestrian access is clearly not allowed
