The Surprising Facts and Statistics on Pedestrian Accidents
Although we often think of drivers and passengers when we talk of traffic accidents, the truth is that unknowing pedestrians account for many of the victims. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that in 2015 alone, a total of 5,376 pedestrians died in accidents in the US, which was 15 percent of all traffic fatalities that year.
In fact, on average, a pedestrian was killed almost every 1.6 hours and injured approximately every 7.5 minutes in the US, according to 2015 data.
It is sad to think that just crossing the street or jogging alongside it can expose someone to real risks because of reckless or negligent motorists. For instance, the NHTSA’s 2015 report states that 15 percent of the fatal pedestrian crashes involved drunk drivers (with blood alcohol levels of .08 g/dL or higher). Further, 19 percent of the pedestrians killed that year were struck in hit-and-run crashes.
What makes it more distressing is that pedestrian accidents are some of the worst, primarily because walkers, runners, and bystanders have no protection at all against vehicles striking them. In an accident, pedestrians are often left with devastating or even life-threatening injuries, not to mention medical and rehabilitation expenses that could cripple their finances. This is why they not only deserve monetary compensation but may greatly need it.
