Indianapolis Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

The top rated Indianapolis law firm of William “Bill” Hurst has successfully represented hundreds of clients who were seriously injured while walking along or crossing Indiana streets or highways. Our experienced pedestrian accident lawyers know that pedestrians are at an increased risk of personal injury and wrongful death when they are involved in a car accident, motorcycle accident, or truck accident.  While drivers are protected by their vehicles, pedestrians have no such protection and are more susceptible to suffer severe injuries, such as, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. For the best possible results contact an experienced Indianapolis pedestrian accident lawyer today.

The most recent study done by the NHTSA indicates that in 2012 nearly 76,000 pedestrians were injured and 4,743 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes. To put that number in perspective, that means a pedestrian was killed in a traffic accident every 2 hours. Pedestrian deaths accounted for 14% of all traffic accident deaths.

Almost ¾ of pedestrian deaths occurred in urban areas. Only 30% of those deaths occurred at intersection. Nearly 70% of these deaths occurred at night. In 48% of the traffic crashes resulting in the death of a pedestrian either the driver or the pedestrian had alcohol in their system. 69% of the pedestrians killed in traffic accidents were males. Pedestrians age 65+ account for 1/5 of the pedestrian deaths and fatality rates for those older than 45 are higher than younger age groups.

The most common causes of pedestrian accidents include inattentive or preoccupied drivers talking on cell phones or looking at their GPS. Other causes include failure to observe speed limits, yield the right-of-way or disregard traffic controls. While many accidents involving children are often devastating, it is clear that the injuries to minors are generally minor compared to similar injuries in a senior.
