Have you been injured in a car accident while you were a pedestrian?
Let’s look at some fast facts:
- An estimated 6,227 pedestrians were killed in 2018, an increase of 250 from 2017, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association.
- What’s more, five states – including California – accounted for almost half the pedestrian fatalities in the first half of 2018.
- Almost 129,000 pedestrians were treated in emergency departments for non-fatal crash-related injuries in 2015, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
