Chad Rankin and Bill Gregory have handled many pedestrian accidents. Many of their pedestrian accidents have involved clients who are struck by vehicles turning or running a red light while the client is legally crossing a street in the crosswalk.
According to PennDOT, pedestrians injured or killed by motorists were most likely crossing the street at an intersection, mid-block crossing, or driveway entrance. Simply crossing a street walking, running, jogging, or playing result in the most pedestrian accidents. Elderly pedestrians are involved in fewer fewer pedestrian crashes, but are more likely
to be fatally injured if struck by a moving motor vehicle. Perhaps surprisingly, younger pedestrians (age 19 and under) account for 27% of the pedestrian injuries. PennDOT reports that most pedestrian fatalities and injuries occurred in areas without traffic control devices (TCDs). In 2019, areas without TCDs accounted for 117 pedestrian fatalities and 2,075 injuries.
Recently Bill Gregory recovered a substantial six-figure settlement for a pedestrian accident where the client was properly crossing the street in a crosswalk. The at-fault driver was not paying attention when he made a left turn, which caused him to strike the pedestrian.
Above & Beyond
Pedestrian fatalities increased to 182, up from 146 in 2020. Pedestrian fatalities accounted for 15% of fatalities statewide in 2021. Active transportation is on the rise and being promoted across all areas of the state from urban centers to small rural towns, resulting in increased pedestrian activity making it more likely to have collisions with motor vehicles.
