Miami Beach Cross
Walk Accident Attorney
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 129,000 pedestrians attend emergency rooms across the United States each year following traffic crashes. When a fatal traffic collision occurs, pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than vehicle passengers to be killed. A total of almost 5,400 pedestrians were killed on or near US roads in 2015. Sobering facts, to say the least. That is not the end of it, as the CDC report goes on to reveal that:
- Pedestrians aged 65 or older accounted for almost 20% of all pedestrian deaths and 13% of injuries in cross walk accidents in 2015
- 20% of under-15s who were killed in 2015 traffic accidents were pedestrians
- 48% of fatal cross walk and other pedestrian traffic accidents involved alcohol
