Pedestrian Accidents in Pennsylvania
In 2020, it was reported that 2,788 pedestrians were injured in Pennsylvania accidents and dozens even lost their lives.
Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable individuals on our roads in the state of Pennsylvania. This is due to the fact that, in the event of an accident involving a vehicle, pedestrians have no protection from harm making them more likely to become critically injured or even killed in the event of a pedestrian accident.
