The Importance of Pedestrian Safety

Many drivers have an unfortunate habit of keeping their eyes only on other cars. As a result, they are less likely to notice people walking or biking, even those who are right in front of them. The consequences of this thoughtlessness can be severe for pedestrians.

In 2006, nearly 5,000 pedestrians were killed in collisions with motor vehicles. Even more accidents caused pedestrians to suffer non-fatal but still serious injuries, including:

  • Spinal cord damage
  • Head injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Severe lacerations or “road burn”
  • Lasting disability

Of course these accidents had many causes, ranging from unpredictable weather to careless pedestrians. However, many of them could have been avoided if the drivers involved had taken more care towards the pedestrians sharing the road with them. If you have been hurt or lost a loved one to a careless driver, our Phoenix pedestrian injury attorneys can advise you about your best options.
