Most accidents involving a pedestrian and an automobile are very serious and result in catastrophic
injuries for the pedestrian. Because of the severity of pedestrian automobile accidents, it’s
recommended that injured pedestrians contact a personal injury attorney to help with the case.

Insurance adjusters often pressure the accident victims to settle the case for far less than it’s worth.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, over 150,000 pedestrians are treated in emergency rooms
for injuries every year. Some of those injured ultimately die from their injuries. Unfortunately,
pedestrian injuries are on the rise, as more vehicles clog our roads and more cities plan their growth to
accommodate pedestrians.

The majority of pedestrian accidents happen in urban areas. There are several types of driver behavior
that result in most accidents involving pedestrian injuries. Drivers failing to yield is the largest cause of
pedestrian accidents in the U.S. Vehicles making a turn also account for a large number of pedestrian
injuries. Sadly, hit and run collisions are also common.
