On average, 13 pedestrians die in accidents every day in the United States. Many more suffer significant injuries in a pedestrian accident. Those injuries can affect them for the rest of their lives.
When a pedestrian is hit by a motor vehicle, there is nothing protecting the pedestrian from the collision. The impact is often forceful and dangerous. In addition, it is not unusual for a pedestrian accident victim to suffer a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, fracture or internal injury.
