Pittsburgh Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Downtown Pittsburgh has a walkability score of 95. The greater Pittsburgh area has a walkability score of 62. Walkability scores are a great way to get a feel for what the city has to offer for pedestrians. For example, walkability scores tell people that the city has amenities like grocery shopping or restaurants and nightlife that are easily accessible on foot. And why not walk? Especially when getting into a car accident is more likely than getting into an accident as a pedestrian. Or is it?

Unfortunately, Pittsburgh can be just as dangerous for pedestrians as those who drive. It’s typical to get distracted by all the history of downtown, but you need to stay alert when walking across streets or across crosswalks. Pittsburgh drivers need to be more alert of pedestrians who are using the proper crosswalks and signals at the intersection. Over the past few years, research states that the most pedestrian accidents occurred in intersections. This means that cars are not paying attention to people as they walk across the streets. Conversely, people may not be paying attention to cross signals and potentially jay walking onto streets without using proper safety precautions.

Pedestrian Injuries

When a car hits you, the bumper usually hits between your lower torso and knees. Depending on how fast the car is going, you can be knocked onto the hood or just tipped over. Either way, if you are hit then you may have to deal with knee, arms, shoulders, and or head injuries. These injuries may be minor or they can be more traumatic like broken bones or traumatic brain injury that can leave you with a permanent injury.

If you are hit by a car and still conscious then here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Try to remain calm and call 911 immediately. Sometimes when people are hit they do not feel the injury until their adrenaline has decreased. Try to move minimally until medical attention gets to you.
  2. Ensure that others are safe around you and you are removed from any future accidents.
  3. Make sure that the car stays parked in the position where it hit you. If the car tries to drive away then it is considered a hit and run. Make sure to always get the license plate and insurance information from the driver.
  4. Gather as much information as you can via photographs or interviews from witnesses. The more information you can gather the better as it will help prove your injuries in the long run.
