Pedestrian accidents are often horrific to view and even more horrific if you are involved. As a pedestrian, there is little to no protection for pedestrians and, because of this, individuals are not a match for vehicles that weigh thousands of pounds.
Given the severity of these accidents, they are often among the most devastating kind of accident. They can cause severe and life-altering injuries, and sometimes they can even lead to death.
According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, approximately 6,000 pedestrians were killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2017. “States reported a total of 2,636 pedestrian fatalities for the first six months of 2017. Adjusting the raw data based on past trends, GHSA estimates that there were 5,984 pedestrian fatalities in 2017, essentially unchanged from the 5,987 pedestrians killed in 2016,” added the GHSA.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety further reports, “The summer and early fall are the most dangerous times of year on the nation’s roads…” They also add that fatalities rise during weekends as well as during late afternoon and early evening.
