Pedestrian Accident Statistics

The number of pedestrian accident fatalities decreased over the years, according to NYC Open Data. However, just because an accident does not result in fatalities does not mean the accident was not serious. In 2016, 10,437 pedestrian accidents were reported, all involving injuries. Compared to the other boroughs, Brooklyn had the highest fatality count, while Staten Island had the lowest.

Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Depending on several factors, such as the speed of the vehicle and the area it hit, injuries in a pedestrian accident can vary in severity.

Below are some of the most common types:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal injuries, such as organ damage and rib fractures
  • Pelvic injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries, which can result in paralysis
  • Bone fractures
  • Severe lacerations
  • Death

What Should I Do After a Pedestrian Accident?

Much like any other motor vehicle accident, injured pedestrians must contact local law enforcement and collect as much information from the driver as possible, including car insurance information, name, and address. When the police arrive, they will write up a report, which is crucial evidence for filing a claim and obtaining compensation. You should also take pictures of the scene and your injuries.

Even if your injuries do not seem severe enough to warrant a trip to the hospital in an ambulance, you should still see a doctor once you are free to leave the scene. Not all injuries produce symptoms within the first several hours or even days after they occur. The best way to protect your health and chances of a successful claim is to seek medical treatment as soon as you can.
