Causes of Pedestrian Injuries and Deaths

A total of 49 pedestrians were killed on Massachusetts’ roadways during the time period spanning January of 2019 through June of 2020, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA). This is a slight decrease from years before but is still alarming. Hundreds of pedestrians were injured during the same timeframe, some of them sustaining serious and significant injuries that will affect their lives (and their livelihoods) for months or years to come, or even for life.

Pedestrians can easily become injured or killed when they are struck by vehicles on the street. Even low-speed impacts can be deadly or leave the injured pedestrian with lifelong disabilities and deficits, as Milton pedestrian accident attorneys know all too well. Some of the most commonly cited causes behind pedestrian-involved crashes include:

  • Driver inattention: Drivers who text or talk on the phone are often distracted to the point that they do not see pedestrians in time to avoid hitting them.
  • Drivers who drive drunk or high: Drinking alcohol or doing drugs and getting behind the wheel is a recipe for disaster for pedestrians and others on the roadway, not to mention the driver himself/herself.
  • Driver fatigue: Drivers who drive fatigued or sleepy may be as dangerous as drunk drivers and have similar reaction times.
  • Speeding drivers: Failing to obey the posted speed limit can lead to horrific crashes, including those involving pedestrians.
  • Drivers who disregard traffic control devices: Failing to yield when required or stop at a stoplight as indicated can result in drivers driving when pedestrians are crossing the street, putting pedestrians in harm’s way.
  • Drivers who fail to check their blind spots when backing up: Drivers sometimes plow into pedestrians walking behind them as they back out from a parked position. While generally low-impact, this type of collision can still cause serious injuries.
