Massachusetts pedestrian car accidents usually happen while a Massachusetts resident is crossing the street. However, they can also occur while a person is walking on the side of a street, in parking lots, in recreational areas, or if a car crashes onto a sidewalk. Pedestrians can be injured by cars, trucks, motorcycles or even bicycles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that in 2009, 4,092 pedestrians were killed, and an estimated 59,000 were injured, in pedestrian traffic crashes in the United States. On average, a pedestrian is killed every two hours and injured every nine minutes in a motor vehicle accident.

A Massachusetts car doesn't have to be speeding in order to inflict serious injuries on a pedestrian. Many times, pedestrian accidents in Massachusetts parking lots or on Massachusetts side streets cause injuries that don't immediately seem as serious as they later become. Getting bumped in a parking lot or intersection may become a long-term back or hip problem. It is important to get competent medical attention immediately if you have been involved in any type of Massachusetts car accident.

Massachusetts law favors the rights of pedestrians over motor vehicles of any type, but this right is not absolute. For example, pedestrians do have to use reasonable caution when crossing roads without crosswalks, and generally have to yield to highway traffic on Massachusetts highways. Thus, pedestrians may be found to be at fault if they fail to use reasonable care when crossing the road without a crosswalk or when crossing a highway. Negligence, under Massachusetts law, is the failure to use reasonable care under all of the facts and circumstances of a given situation.

Drivers are subject to a number of Massachusetts rules with respect to pedestrians. Specifically, Massachusetts law provides that drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, when the pedestrians are in the drivers’ lane or within ten feet of the lane, can be subject to a $200 fine. Drivers who pass other drivers who have stopped for pedestrians face similar fines. Drivers who actually injure or kill pedestrians, of course, may be subject to criminal prosecution and Massachusetts civil suits by those who are injured or killed.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a Massachusetts pedestrian auto accident, your injuries can be quite severe. It is important that you seek medical attention right away, but it is also important that you or someone you trust either write down the driver’s contact information, driver’s license number and insurance information, or call the local police to investigate the pedestrian auto accident. Evidence at the accident scene and witness statements are especially crucial in such cases, and it is important that you contact an experienced Massachusetts car accident lawyer as soon as you have sought out and received adequate medical care.

In addition, you will want to avoid speaking with, providing statements to or signing documents for insurance investigators.
