Motorists kill and injure innocent pedestrians every day. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), 7,680 pedestrians died in traffic and non-traffic accidents last year. As such, the NSC’s Pedestrian Injury Facts report shows that pedestrians comprise at least 17.2% of all traffic deaths. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s crash data excludes accidents on private property such as driveways and parking lots. As such, the true number and relative danger of pedestrian injuries and deaths is likely much higher.

Q: Where and when do most pedestrian accidents occur?
According the National Safety Council, 79.18% of fatal pedestrian crashes occurred in urban areas. While 25.47% of walkers were killed while crossing at an intersection, car, bus, and truck drivers hits most pedestrians in other locations. Correspondingly, these locations include streets, parking lots, and driveways. Importantly, lighting conditions play a major roll in pedestrian crashes. In fact, 75% of fatal pedestrian accidents were at night. Another 5% of walkers died after being hit at dusk or dawn. Approximately 20% of deadly pedestrian collisions occurred in daylight.
Q: How long do I have to file my pedestrian accident case in a Pennsylvania court?
Every state in America sets time limits for filing lawsuits called “statutes of limitations.” Additionally, the length of time depends on the type of case. In Pennsylvania, a pedestrian accident case is most likely to be a personal injury case and/or a wrongful death lawsuit. If the case involves personal injury claims, then the statute of limitations is 2 years. The 2 years begins on the date of the accident. Likewise, the statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is also 2 years. However, the 2 years begins on the date the victim died. Accordingly, if the victim dies on the date of the accident, the statute of limitations for the personal injury and wrongful death claims will be the same. Conversely, if a pedestrian is hit and suffers serious injuries and later dies, the statute of limitations for the claims will be different.
While 2 years may sound like a long time, there is a lot of work to do. In order to give your lawyer enough time to prepare a winning case, you should get legal representation ASAP.
Q: Why do I need a lawyer to represent me in my pedestrian accident case?
Unfortunately, many pedestrian accident victims do not realize the importance of good legal representation. As a result, they try to learn Pennsylvania’s complex collision law while recovering for their injuries. In other instances, they hire poor legal representatives. As a result, these crash victims almost always lose their cases or get far less compensation than they deserve. Claimants with legal representation tend to win three times the amount of compensation as those who go it alone. If you hire a top-notch lawyer, the numbers could be even greater.
