Best Practices for Pedestrian Safety:

Preventing pedestrian accidents begins with awareness and adherence to safety guidelines. Here are some best practices for pedestrians to avoid getting hit:

  1. Use Crosswalks: Whenever possible, cross streets at designated crosswalks and obey traffic signals such as Do Not Walk and Walk indicators. Do not “jaywalk” between intersections.
  2. Stay Visible: Wear bright or reflective clothing, especially when walking at night or in low-light conditions.
  3. Avoid Distractions: Stay alert and avoid distractions such as texting or listening to music while walking near traffic.
  4. Make Eye Contact: When crossing streets, try to make eye contact with drivers to ensure they see you before proceeding.
  5. Look Both Ways: Always look both ways before crossing the street, even at intersections with pedestrian signals.
  6. Face Traffic Flow: Whenever possible walk on side of roadway that is opposite direction of traffic, not in same direction of traffic, so walk on left side of two-way roadways.

Catastrophic Nature of Pedestrian Accidents:

Pedestrian accidents often result in catastrophic injuries due to the lack of protection pedestrians have compared to motorists. Common injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Broken Bones
  • Internal Organ Damage
  • Severe Lacerations and Bruising
  • Emotional Trauma

Commercial Vehicle vs. Regular Motor Vehicle Accidents:

Pedestrian accidents involving commercial vehicles, such as trucks or buses, can be even more catastrophic due to their size and weight. Factors such as driver fatigue, improper maintenance, and inadequate training may contribute to these accidents. When you're hit by a commercial vehicle, liability issues can become more complex, involving multiple parties such as the driver, the company, and possibly third-party contractors.
