Pedestrian Accident Increase in San Bernardino

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Pedestrian Accident

At the end of the day, all of us want to get home safely. Whether we are driving, taking public transit, or walking, we want to arrive safely at our destination. If you were to take a quiz on which of those three modes of transportation was the most dangerous you may be inclined to say driving. We all know car accidents happen frequently. However, our pedestrian accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg wants you to know that while pedestrian accidents are less frequent they are more fatal.

Whether you are walking to the story, through your neighborhood, or to work, you deserve to feel safe. Whether you are a child at play or an elderly getting the mail, you deserve to feel protected. Whenever a pedestrian is injured it is not just the victim who is hurt. The family and friends of the victim feel the pain too. Getting injured due to an accident can prevent you from maintaining your job and getting the income you need to survive. An injury can mean big medical bills. If your injury was severe enough then you may have chronic pain which means constant medical bills. Your future can change in an instant. Unfortunately, in San Bernardino, pedestrians are experiencing more risk not less.

Increasing Accidents

Just like any other accident, whenever so many occur a pattern emerges. When it comes to pedestrian accidents, the national average of pedestrian accidents occurred the most between 6 pm and midnight. Data suggests that about 75% of all pedestrian accidents happen after dark.  According to the Governors Highway Safety Association,  these accidents aren’t happening at intersections where people are typically found walking. This means that people who are walking on the sides of roads or on crosswalks are in more danger than any other space.

Because San Bernardino is car dependable town, the infrastructure is not accommodating to walkers. In fact, the walking score for the community is in the 40’s out of a possible 100. This should not deter people from walking, but it should tell you that drivers tend to dominate in transportation mode. California Office of Traffic Spokesperson, Tim Weisberg, believes he has an answer as to why pedestrian accidents have increased on our streets. He believes that speeding is the root of most accidents. Weisberg commented that speeding increases the likelihood of a fatality. In order to prevent more accidents, police are instructed to hand out more violations to cars that fail to yield at proper crosswalks.

What To Do

Common injuries associated with pedestrian accidents typically require medical attention. From broken bones to head trauma, if you are hit by a car you are more than likely going to deal with some kind of injury. If so, then our Los Angeles lawyers at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg are ready to help.
