New York Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian crashes happen thousands of times per year in the United States. These accidents often end in injuries and even fatalities for the people involved. On average, over 5,000 pedestrians lose their lives yearly in auto accidents in the United States. Most of the time, these collisions take place because one or more parties involved were acting negligently. Over half of the time, negligent drivers are at fault for causing pedestrian crashes in the US. Drivers who fail to yield the right of way often cause pedestrian accidents that cause pedestrians to sustain injuries that are severe and even debilitating in nature.
Pedestrians who sustain serious injuries in collisions often have to spend a lot of time recovering either in the hospital or at home. This can result in time missed at work and with family, which can be depressing and cause a lot of anxiety.
