What Are the Leading Causes of Pedestrian Accidents?
Although most pedestrian accidents usually involve a car, only about 12% of all pedestrian accidents result from vehicle collisions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) cites low-quality facilities as the primary cause of pedestrian accidents.
The most common causes of pedestrian accidents:
- Tripping on cracked or uneven sidewalk - These types of premises liability incidents can often be caused by negligence on the part of the property or business owner.
- Being hit by a car - Accidents caused by negligent drivers are one of the leading causes of pedestrian accidents. This can include drivers hitting a pedestrian in a crosswalk, or a pedestrian being hit by a car in a parking lot.
- Tripping on a stone or stepping in a hole - These accidents too can often be a result of failure to maintain premises properly.
Depending on the cause and location of your pedestrian accident, liability for your injuries can fall on a number of potential defendants. Our pedestrian accident lawyers in Ventura can help you determine whether another person or entity is legally responsible for the injuries you've suffered.
Pedestrian Accident Statistics
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, close to 5,000 pedestrians are killed annually in the United States, and somewhere around 75,000 are injured each year-though only a fraction of pedestrian injuries are actually reported. Among these statistics, California has the most pedestrian accidents and fatalities each year.
