SCV Personal Injury Attorney | Statistics on Accidents involving Pedestrians | The Mason Law Firm | Mason Rashtian

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations, traffic accidents in 2008 resulted in 4,378 pedestrian deaths and 69,000 pedestrian injuries.  If we were to break this down, it would mean that on average, traffic accidents (such as car accidents, bus accidents and truck accidents) results in 1 pedestrian fatality every 120 minutes (i.e. every 2 hours) and 1 injured pedestrian every 8 minutes.

Most pedestrian fatalities occurred in urban areas (72%), at non-intersection locations (76%), in normal weather conditions (89%), and at night (70%).  Pedestrians have certain rights that need to be protected.  For a complete article on pedestrian rights, please see our article on Pedestrian Accidents (click here).

If you, as a pedestrian, have been struck by a vehicle, you should seek immediate medical attention.  Further, if you wish to obtain an honest assessment of your case, and educate yourself as to your options, please give us a call.  There is never a fee unless there is recovery in the case.  For your convenience, we have three offices throughout Southern California, including Santa Clarita Valley, San Fernando Valley and Pasadena.
