Pedestrian Accident Cases
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), each year in the U.S., there are thousands of traffic accidents involving pedestrians which lead to serious injuries and wrongful deaths. Los Angeles is a huge contributor to this data as one of the most dangerous cities to be in as a pedestrian.
Because of their lack of protection and their susceptibility to injuries when colliding with a motor vehicle, pedestrians are at a greater risk of catastrophic injuries and wrongful death than motorists, cyclists, and motorcyclists.
How to Increase Safety When Traveling as a Pedestrian
Use a marked crosswalk and if there’s a traffic light, cross when the walk signal is facing you. This one statement cannot be emphasized enough for safety as a pedestrian. Using a marked crosswalk increases your safety and visibility. Not using a cross walk may negatively affect your case.
Wear bright, colorful, and reflective clothing. If you are traveling as a pedestrian at night, wear reflective clothing and carry a light that blinks continuously.
However, sometimes a pedestrian can be hit by a vehicle even while wearing bright clothing or crossing in the marked crosswalk. Distracted driving often leads to pedestrian accidents. With so many people checking their phones for social media posts, making phone calls, and text messaging while driving, distracted driving can be as dangerous as driving under the influence.
