New York Pedestrian Collisions
Pedestrian accidents constantly happen in the United States and throughout New York state. Pedestrians are often more severely injured in collisions than other people who may be riding in vehicles at the time of their accidents. Pedestrians travel with basically no protection against the force of large vehicles if they become involved in an accident. This makes them the most vulnerable travelers on the road at any given time. Despite numerous safety measures implemented to keep pedestrians as safe as possible, we continue to see them injured and killed at alarming rates. Unfortunately, this is most likely due to the fact that most drivers engage in negligent activity.
In 2021, approximately 9% of all accident fatalities in New York City involved a pedestrian. In one year’s time, thousands of pedestrians are injured and killed in traffic accidents in New York City. Pedestrians in New York City are more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries in the case of an accident.
