At Houston pedestrian accident lawyer Reshard Alexander, my focus is on helping people recover full financial damages for injuries and wrongful deaths caused by pedestrian accidents.

Pedestrian accidents often injure those who are most vulnerable — school children walking to and from school, or elderly persons trying to cross busy streets. Another common type of pedestrian accident occurs when a car hits a pedestrian in the crosswalk because the driver is looking at traffic, and not at the pedestrian.

The seriousness of pedestrian injuries depends upon how fast the car was traveling. Leg injuries can range from torn cartilage and tendons to broken bones (fractures of the kneecap (patella), tibia and fibula of the lower leg, and femur in the upper leg). If the pedestrian is thrown into the air, injuries can include brain damage, herniated discs, internal injuries to the kidney or spleen, and liver lacerations.

pedestrian crossing or crosswalk is a place designated for pedestrians to cross a roadstreet or avenuePelican crosswalks are designed to keep pedestrians together where they can be seen by motorists, and where they can cross most safely across the flow of vehicular traffic.

Pedestrian accidents are almost always very serious. As a result, it’s extremely important to obtain full financial compensation so the injured person can receive the medical care and rehabilitation services they will need.

Marked pedestrian crossings are often found at intersections, but may also be at other points on busy roads that would otherwise be too unsafe to cross without assistance due to vehicle numbers, speed or road widths. They are also commonly installed where large numbers of pedestrians are attempting to cross (such as in shopping areas) or where vulnerable road users (such as school children) regularly cross. Rules govern usage of the pedestrian crossings to ensure safety; for example, in some areas, the pedestrian must be more than halfway across the crosswalk before the driver proceeds.

Signalized pedestrian crossings clearly separate when each type of traffic (pedestrians or road vehicles) can use the crossing. Unsignalised crossings generally assist pedestrians, and usually prioritize pedestrians, depending on the locality. What appears to be just pedestrian crossings can also be created largely as a traffic calming technique, especially when combined with other features like a pedestrian priority, refuge islands, or raised surfaces.

Houston and Harris County Pedestrian Accident Deaths

Texas Department of Transportation statistics said that in an eight county area including Houston, between 2003 and 2008, around 100 pedestrians died and 1,175 were injured in crashes every year. Mark Seegers, a spokesperson for Harris County commissioner Sylvia Garcia, said in 2009 that “The county does not do sidewalks; it’s not what gets cars [the predominate form of transportation in the Houston area] from point A to point B.” Robin Holzer, a transportation advocate with the Citizens’ Transportation Coalition, criticized the emphasis on automobiles, saying “The people on foot and bike are trying to go to the same schools and restaurants and shops as people in cars are going to.”[10]

In 2005 the Houston-Galveston Area Council identified several communities in Harris County considered to be among the most hazardous to pedestrians. Many of them, including Greenspoint and Gulfton, are located outside the 610 Loop.[11] In 2009 the lobby group Transportation for America said that the Houston area was the eighth most dangerous area for pedestrians in 2007-2008.[12]

In 2013, Mayor Annise Parker announced the “Houston Complete Street and Transportation Plan”, which was an executive order calling for enhanced pedestrian and bicycling modes of transportation when planning new or reconstructing streets.[13] Combined with the “ReBuild Houston” initiative approved by Houston voters in 2010, many new streets have been redesigned using the complete street guidelines.

Houston currently has over 300 miles of City-constructed bike lanes, bike routes, shared lanes, bayou trails and rails-to-trails across a 500 square mile area of Houston.

Key Factors in Houston Car Accident Pedestrian Deaths

Key risks for pedestrians are well known. Among the well-documented factors are: driver behavior, (including speeding, drinking, and driving); infrastructure missing facilities (including sidewalks, crossings and raised medians); and vehicle design which are not forgiving to pedestrians struck by a vehicle.[13] Most pedestrians are injured at crossing a street/road.[13] Most pedestrian-involved crashes occur by night.[13]

Most pedestrians are killed by a frontal impact car crash. In such a situation, a pedestrian is struck by a car front; for instance the bumper touch either the leg or knee-joint area; then, the lower part of the body is accelerated forwards, while the upper part of the body rotates and accelerated to the car; this will likely cause damage to the pelvis and thorax. Then the head hits the windscreen with the velocity of the striking car. Finally, the victim falls to the ground.[13]

Some special interest groups consider pedestrian fatalities on American roads a carnage.[19] Five states, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, and Texas produce 46% of all pedestrian deaths in the country.[19] Speculation of the causes for the increase in the USA includes population growth, driver distraction with a mobile phone, popularity of SUVs over smaller family cars, poor street lighting, alcohol and drugs, and speeding.[19]

Cities have had mixed results in addressing pedestrian safety with Vizion zero plan: Los Angeles has failed while NYC has had success. Nonetheless in the USA, some pedestrians have just 40 seconds to cross a 10 lanes street.[19]
