More About Pedestrian Accident Claims
In an accident involving a motorized vehicle and a pedestrian, the unprotected pedestrian will be likely to suffer a catastrophic injury – including a spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury , or could be killed. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2009, 4,092 pedestrians were killed and an estimated 59,000 were injured in traffic crashes in the United States. Pedestrian accidents accounted for 12% of all traffic fatalities, and over 90% of the fatalities occurred in single vehicle crashes. Three-fourths of the fatalities occurred in urban settings at non-intersection areas.
