Though walking is a healthy, cheap and environmentally-friendly mode of transportation and recreation, it can also be very dangerous. According to a report by the Washington-based Transportation for America (T4A), Memphis is the 7th most dangerous large metro area for pedestrians in the entire United States, with 266 fatalities between 2000 and 2009. Transportation for America, using the Pedestrian Danger Index (PDI), ranked Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi all in the top 14 most dangerous states for pedestrians. Tennessee ranked 12th, Arkansas came in 14th, and Mississippi turned in at a worrisome 7th.

The National Safety Council approximates the total cost, including both economic and noneconomic costs, for each traffic death at $4.3 million; meaning that in last decade alone, pedestrian deaths set the United States back $180 billion, with deaths costing Tennessee $3.47 billion.

How a Memphis Pedestrian Accident Attorney Can Help

Usually, poor maintenance or design of the streets, roads, and sidewalks, along with the carelessness of the driver are the causes of pedestrian accidents. Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable when crossing streets and walking on the shoulder, especially when drivers are negligent or conditions are unfavorable. This vulnerability can lead to devastating injuries, including long-lasting disabilities, decreased earning capacity, and even death. If you or a loved one was injured in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, you may qualify to pursue a lawsuit to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
