In the United States in 2017, there were 5,977 pedestrian deaths reported nationwide. This means that a pedestrian was killed every 88 minutes. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to die in the event of a car accident Despite having one of the lowest levels of pedestrian activity in the country, Mississippi has one of the highest pedestrian fatality rates.

When a pedestrian is involved in a collision with a motor vehicle, they are at a significant disadvantage and are more likely to sustain life-threatening injuries. This has contributed to a higher mortality rate for pedestrians. Pedestrians, unlike those in passenger cars, have little protection from the full impact of an accident. The injuries that result can be life-changing. Many drivers fail to yield the right of way and share the road with pedestrians.  After being hit by a negligent driver, a Gulfport car crash lawyer can assist you in recovering financial compensation for your injuries.
