Pedestrians who are hit by cars can endure life-altering injuries. When motorists are not paying attention to their surroundings and do not safely share the road with pedestrians, the results are often devastating. From broken bones and appearance-changing scars to stress and emotional trauma, being struck by a motor vehicle changes you forever.
Pedestrians are well aware of the risks of being injured in accidents with motor vehicles. From the time we are able to walk, we learn to “stop, look and listen” before crossing the street. Unfortunately, even when pedestrians follow all the rules and cross at designated crosswalks, accidents can still happen.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there is an average of one crash-related pedestrian fatality every two hours in the U.S. Additionally, pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than vehicle occupants to be killed in a car crash on each trip.
Whether you were struck by a car while out for a run, walking to work or school, or simply crossing the street, your right to safety was violated by a driver who was not paying attention.
