Pedestrian Accidents

The statistics of pedestrian injuries and deaths at the mercy of motor vehicles are disheartening. Each year in the United States alone, approximately 110,000 pedestrians are injured and 60,000 are killed. Children are more likely to be involved in pedestrian accidents due to their small stature and unpredictable behavior (lack of knowledge of pedestrian laws, or distraction while playing a game.) Just the thought of the probable outcome of a collision between a 3,000 pound car and a human body is enough to understand the severity of injuries that can occur in a pedestrian auto accident.
