Pedestrians have the right to feel safe when walking down Pennsylvania city streets. Unfortunately, many drivers do not take the necessary precautions at crosswalks, intersections, and other places pedestrians frequent.

According to data from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, over 2,500 pedestrians were injured in vehicle-related crashes in 2020. While pedestrian accidents may be more common in big metros like Pittsburgh, they still happen frequently in smaller cities like New Castle.

If you or a loved one were injured in a pedestrian accident in Lawrence County, content our experienced team at Luxenberg Garbett Kelly George. We can review your case during a free consultation.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are most commonly injured when they are struck by a moving vehicle, such as a car or commercial truck. In these circumstances, driver negligence is almost always to blame.

The following types of driver negligence can cause a pedestrian accident:

Pedestrian accidents can also be caused by other factors, like dangerous roads or defective walkways. For example, a pedestrian might trip and fall because of a large pothole in the street. The property owner or entity responsible for maintaining the road or sidewalk may be held responsible for your injuries in these cases.

Compensation for Pedestrian Injuries

Pedestrians who are hit by a motor vehicle often suffer catastrophic and fatal injuries because unlike motorists or even cyclists, pedestrians do not wear any sort of protective gear. These serious injuries may never fully heal, leaving the victim with permanent disability.
