Pedestrian Accident Statistics for San Francisco

San Francisco is famous as being one of the most walkable cities in California and throughout the United States, and a large percentage of residents choose to travel by foot and to use public transportation rather than driving. All the same, the S.F. Department of Public Health reports that there are more than 900,000 automobiles travelling on the streets of the city on an average workday. As a result, it is all but inevitable that pedestrian accidents will occur. In 2010, there were 789 pedestrian accidents that resulted in injury and 16 that resulted in death, according to the California Highway Patrol. The city health department states that 41 percent of all victims of fatal pedestrian accidents are senior citizens, and that people in this age group are 9 times more likely than younger people to be killed in a pedestrian crash. The most statistically dangerous intersections for pedestrians in San Francisco include:

  • Mission and 16th Streets
  • Potrero Avenue and 16th Street
  • Jones Street and Golden Gate Avenue
  • Market and Hyde Streets
  • Mission and 18th Streets

Take Action After a Pedestrian Accident

Wherever your accident took place, the team at the Law Offices of Steven A. Fabbro wants to help you claim the financial compensation you deserve. We have more than 30 years of experience fighting for accident victims and their families, and we are ready to take immediate action on your personal injury or wrongful death claim.

A large percentage of all pedestrian accidents are caused by drivers. Someone who is crossing the street on foot is usually fully aware of the dangers involved, and will normally look both ways to be sure that he or she does not step out in front of oncoming traffic. Drivers, however, are often distracted by cell phones or other factors, and they will frequently forget to check before turning or crossing an intersection. Whether the driver who caused your accident was driving drunk or was texting behind the wheel, we urge you to take the first step in your case now by contacting our office for a free consultation with a San Francisco personal injury attorney.
