Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Pennsylvania
The loss of a loved one due to a fatal accident can be incredibly difficult to accept. Unfortunately, more than 1100 people die as a result of crashes that occur in Pennsylvania every year. Fatal pedestrian accidents can be especially devastating due to the fact that these victims have no protection.
Various acts of negligence continue to contribute to the number of accidents that take place in Pennsylvania every year. Some of the most common causes of these accidents include:
- Distractions: When drivers are not paying attention to the road ahead, they can cause serious injuries that have devastating consequences on others. Distractions are some of the leading causes of crashes that take place. Unfortunately, countless people are texting, talking to others, or even eating while behind the wheel.
- Running red lights: When drivers run through red lights without stopping, they place the life of other people traveling to the intersection at risk. Unfortunately, we see many people cause severe accidents that result in devastating injuries for those involved due to their failure to stop at intersections.
- Failing to yield: When drivers do not yield to pedestrians who are passing in the area nearby, they can strike them and cause severe or fatal injuries.
