Michigan Pedestrian Crashes

Pedestrian accidents are a growing problem in Michigan and across the United States. The pedestrian accident rate in the Wolverine State rose approximately 19% from 2019 to 2020. Throughout the United States, the pedestrian crash rate rose more than 21% in 2020, the largest yearly increase ever recorded. 

By nature, injuries suffered in pedestrian accidents are usually more severe than other types of injuries, especially when compared to those suffered in crashes that occur between two vehicles. This is due to the fact that those traveling by foot or bicycle lack the protection provided by a vehicle. For this reason, they’re at a much higher risk for serious, debilitating, or even deadly injuries.
