Were You Hit By A Car While Crossing The Street?
An act as innocent as walking along the street can turn into a fatal accident and the victim is often not the one to blame. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are common, especially in highly populated urban areas. Pedestrian accidents caused by autos can result in serious injury or even death. Children and the elderly have a higher risk of being hit by a vehicle while they walk, bike, run, jog or play near the street.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board, more than 63,000 pedestrians suffer an injury from accidents with a vehicle and more than 5,000 pedestrians lose their lives from pedestrian accidents every year in the United States.
Pedestrians have no way to protect themselves during a collision with a vehicle, leaving them at a dramatically higher risk of serious injuries or death. There are multiple factors that can cause a pedestrian accident, including speeding, negligent or distracted driving, caused by a driver who is talking on a cell phone, texting while driving or simply not paying attention.
