According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 6,000 pedestrians were fatally injured after being struck by motor vehicles in 2016 throughout the United States. Over that same time period, more than 120,000 additional pedestrians suffered injuries that required medical treatment. In a large percentage of the motor vehicle collisions involving pedestrians, the collision only occurred due to the reckless actions of the driver. If you or a loved one were injured after being struck by a car, you are likely entitled to injury compensation.

Unfortunately, the most vulnerable members of our society are statistically more likely to be involved in a pedestrian accident. Both children and the elderly are commonly injured after being struck by motor vehicles. According to the CDC, approximately 20 percent of all pedestrians fatally injured in 2016 were people over the age of 65. Elderly Americans are prone to pedestrian accidents due in large part to diminished mobility and vision. Tragically, thousands of children are also injured each year after being struck by a car.
