Pedestrian Accidents

New-York-City-pedestrian accidentThe National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) reports that each year nearly 5,000 pedestrians die in motor vehicle related accidents, and approximately 76,000 pedestrians in 2012 suffered injuries when hit by a car or truck. Contributing factors resulting in pedestrian injury and death include:

  • Driver Inattention/Distraction
  • Disregard Traffic Control Devices
  • Failure to Yield Right of Way
  • Unsafe Speed
  • Turning Improperly
  • Driving While Intoxicated

Pedestrians walking in crosswalks have the right of way.  Even if a pedestrian is not in the crosswalk, drivers have a duty to yield the right of way.  Drivers are not free to disregard the safety of pedestrians in this or any other situation.  Drivers always have a duty to exercise due care to avoid a collision with a pedestrian.
