COMMON PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT CAUSES & INJURIES
In Albuquerque, we’re lucky to have 310+ days of sunshine each year. Given our unbeatable weather, it can be appealing to take advantage of sunny days by walking to and around town/work/school, etc. We get some exercise, a little vitamin D, and a reason not to use up gas in the tank.
Like drivers, pedestrians have a responsibility to follow laws and exercise reasonable care. Unfortunately, many accidents are caused by driver error each year.
Some of the common causes of pedestrian accidents by driver error include:
– Distracted driving
– Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
– Aggressive or reckless driving
– Driver fails to stop appropriately at stop sign or red light
– Driver fails to see pedestrian when backing out of a parking space
– Driver fails to follow traffic signals.
Since pedestrians do not have the protection of a vehicle, the risk of catastrophic injuries increases dramatically.
Commonly, pedestrian injuries are severe and may include:
– Head trauma
– Broken bones
– Fractured bones
– Back injury
– Neck injury
– Road rash
– Fatal injuries
– …and more.
