According to the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, there were approximately 6,590 pedestrian automobile related deaths in 2019. Unfortunately, there were many more serious pedestrian injury accidents in 2019. There are a number of factors contributing to the higher than normal death rate and increasing number of serious injury related pedestrian accidents.
Some of the reasons include:
- Increased cell phone use
- Increased texting
- Larger vehicles
- Intoxicated drivers
- Inattentive pedestrians
- Pedestrians who dart out from behind parked vehicles
- Inadequate roadway lighting

We know the tactics that insurance companies try to utilize to minimize these types of claims.
They are not interested in looking out for your interest and they often try to argue that you caused the accident , by darting out from behind a parked car, that you were not in a crosswalk, that you were talking or texting on your cell phone, that you were walking in a dark area or wearing dark clothing , or that you were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They may use some or all of these arguments to convince you to take less than your case is worth.
Do not trust an insurance company to protect your interests. Let an experienced pedestrian accident attorney work with you each step of the way during your recovery. We will not let an insurance company take advantage of you. We will fight for every dollar that you deserve. We want you to concentrate on your recovery while we work diligently to maximize your financial settlement.
