Pedestrians are one of the most vulnerable classes of victims involved in auto accidents. A pedestrian can be someone crossing the street, someone walking to get help because their car broke down, a member of a construction or clean-up crew working the side of the road, or even a Good Samaritan stopping to help a stranded motorist. The list goes on and on. What they have in common is that they are vulnerable to very serious injuries because powerful, fast-moving machines can do tremendous damage to us.
Accidents happen for many reasons, including drunk driving, driver inattention, distractions, speeding, extreme weather, heavy traffic, or poor road conditions. Children and the elderly are especially at risk amongst pedestrians, and every year, too many of our loved ones are hurt for the reasons listed above.
