The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that pedestrian injuries in the United States have risen by 19% while pedestrian deaths have increased by 4.2%. Although anyone can be involved in a traffic accident, individuals residing in cities and other densely populated areas are particularly susceptible as they walk and take public transportation more often.
Pedestrian accidents are typically the cause of traffic, insufficient sidewalks, and distracted driving (such as texting while driving).
Pedestrian VS Vehicle
Both pedestrians and drivers have a responsibility to remain alert and use caution when on the road. When a vehicle collides with a pedestrian, he or she can sustain serious injuries or even die as a result of the accident. Injuries from pedestrian accidents can range from sprains and broken bones to more severe bodily damage such as severed limbs, punctured organs, and trauma to the head and spinal cord. Some of these injuries may require long-term or lifelong medical care and rehabilitation, all of which can pose a financially devastating burden on the victim and victim’s family.
