Surviving Pedestrian Accidents

I’m Ed Smith, a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Sacramento. When vehicle drivers ignore obvious traffic signals, speed or run red lights, pedestrians are often the ones who pay the highest price. Without any steel or other metal to protect their bodies, people walking down the street frequently wind up going to emergency rooms with severe or life-threatening injuries.

Nearly every year, about 4,700 or more United States residents die due to pedestrian injuries and another 71,000 must be rushed to hospitals due to accidents involving vehicles. Back in 2012, pedestrian deaths climbed to 14% of all traffic fatalities. Nearly three-fourths of these pedestrian fatalities occur in crowded urban areas as compared to more rural ones.
