A Renton Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Can Help

When yielding, vehicles should come to a complete stop while they allow any and all pedestrians to safely cross the road. Drivers must be diligent in keeping an eye out for pedestrians. Unfortunately, pedestrian automobile accidents often cause serious injury or even death. Some of the more common injuries are:

Pedestrian Accident Statistics in South King County

South King County has experienced an alarming increase in pedestrian fatalities. The number of serious injury crashes involving pedestrians has nearly tripled since 2013. For the cities of Burien, Renton, Des Moines, Tukwila, SeaTac, Kent, Federal Way, and Auburn, the total number of crashes resulting in death or serious injury to pedestrians rose from 33 in 2013 to 95 in 2021. This mirrors the trends in Washington State.

Due to the consistently high speeds of motorists, Highway 99 (also known as Tukwila International Boulevard and Pacific Highway South) has been one hot spot for severe pedestrian injuries. Despite city wide initiatives to educate drivers and reduce speeds, pedestrian accidents still occur on a regular basis.

According to the CDC’s statistics on pedestrian safety:

  • Higher vehicle speeds increase both the likelihood of a pedestrian being struck by a car and the injury severity

  • Most pedestrian deaths (60% in 2020) occur on high-capacity urban roads that typically have posted speed limits of 45-55 miles per hour

  • SUVs can cause more harm to a person on foot when a crash occurs because of their greater body weight and larger profile

  • Alcohol was involved for the driver and/or pedestrian in nearly half (49%) of crashes that resulted in a pedestrian death in 2021

Studies have shown that pedestrian accident lawyers consistently get more money from insurance companies than when a victim pursues their claim independently. It’s standard protocol for insurance companies to train their staff to keep case settlements as low as possible. Because pedestrian accident claims are rare, insurance companies often make lower offers, assuming the accident victims won’t know any better. Fortunately, the team at The Advocates has been doing this for decades, and has a keen understanding of what a fair settlement should look like in even the most severe accident claims.

If you’re unsure whether your settlement offer will be enough to cover your medical expenses, lost income, and other unforeseen costs, you should contact a pedestrian accident lawyer with The Advocates right away.

Consultations are always free and there’s never any cost to you until your case is resolved and there’s money in your pocket. Contact The Advocates today. We will help you get back on your feet.
