Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Orange County

Motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians are increasing in the United States. A 2020 report by the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) indicated an alarming  46% increase in pedestrian fatalities between 2010 and 2019, as compared to a 5% increase in all other traffic-related fatalities. 

The pedestrian accident problem has only grown in the U.S. since the onset of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, with motorists driving more recklessly due to pandemic-induced anger, anxiety, and an altered ability to assess risk, according to a 2022 New York Times article on pedestrian deaths

Orange County residents and visitors are particularly impacted, as crash statistics from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicate that 27% of all California traffic fatalities in 2019 were pedestrians.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

In the majority of car accidents involving pedestrians, the vehicle driver is at fault, often because of a failure to yield the right of way. However, a significant number of pedestrian accidents occur when pedestrians fail to obey traffic laws while crossing roadways. In these cases, pedestrians can be held liable for the accident.
