Pedestrian Injury Lawyer in Alameda County, California

Protecting the Rights of Bystanders in Motor Vehicle Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than one out of every 10 motor vehicle accident fatalities involves a pedestrian. Over a 30-year study, the NHTSA found an average of more than 60,000 pedestrian injuries and approximately 5,000 pedestrian fatalities every year. The study also showed that nearly nine out of every 10 pedestrian accidents occurred in urban areas. Even when the accident isn’t fatal, the injuries sustained are usually serious and catastrophic, including brain and spinal cord trauma, paralysis, broken bones and amputation or loss of limb.
