Common Types of Pedestrian Accidents

There are many types of pedestrian accidents, with each one having the chance to cause serious injury or death.

Some of the most common include:

  • A pedestrian is struck by a vehicle that is turning at an intersection.
  • A pedestrian is struck by a vehicle that is moving in reverse.
  • A pedestrian is struck while crossing the street in a crosswalk.
  • A pedestrian is struck while walking, jogging, or running on the sidewalk or shoulder of the road.
  • A pedestrian is struck in a parking lot.

As you can see, there are many types of pedestrian accidents. Of course, there is one common theme with each one: a person is struck by a vehicle.

Due to the fact that the pedestrian is unprotected, this type of accident can cause serious harm.
