Pedestrian Fatalities in New York
When a car makes contact with a pedestrian, the pedestrian sustains the more significant injuries. As a result, around 1,000 pedestrians die each year in road accidents nationwide.
Pedestrian accidents can be initiated by a multitude of factors, the most frequent being driver error. Inclement weather causing poor road conditions, limited visibility, poorly designed traffic patterns, and the actions of other motorists are all frequent contributing factors in pedestrian accidents.
Improperly marked or unmarked crosswalks and drivers who do not acknowledge right-of-way laws can also play a central role in these injury-causing and potentially fatal accidents.
The reality is that with no external protections against outside forces, pedestrians usually endure the majority of the injuries caused by an impact whether or not they are at fault for the accident.
