Pedestrian Accident Injury Lawyers

The Levensten Law Firm provides comprehensive legal assistance for pedestrian accident cases, a pressing concern in light of increasing pedestrian fatalities.

Understanding the Rise in Pedestrian Accidents

Alarming Increase in Fatalities

Recent reports, including a 2019 CNBC analysis, have highlighted a worrying trend in pedestrian safety. The number of pedestrian deaths has reached a 28-year high, with an estimated 6,227 fatalities in 2018 alone. This represents a significant increase from previous years, signaling a growing concern for pedestrian safety on American roads.

Contributing Factors to the Trend

Several factors are contributing to this rise in fatalities. Notably, the increasing popularity of larger vehicles such as pickups, SUVs, and crossover utility vehicles has been identified as a key concern. These vehicles, due to their size and weight, often result in more severe injuries to pedestrians in the event of an accident. Additionally, the prevalence of smartphone use, both by drivers and pedestrians, has been cited as a contributing factor to the increased risk.

Legal Implications and Rights of Pedestrians

Increased Severity of Injuries from Larger Vehicles

The shift towards larger vehicles has had a direct impact on the severity of injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents. The Governors Highway Safety Association noted that pedestrian fatalities involving SUVs increased by 50% between 2013 and 2017. These statistics underscore the heightened risk and potential for life-threatening injuries in such accidents.

Entitlement to Compensation

Pedestrians involved in these accidents have legal rights to seek compensation. This includes not only personal injury claims but also compensation for lost wages, both present and future, as well as medical expenses. Understanding these rights is crucial for victims and their families in the aftermath of an accident.
