A pedestrian is someone who is going somewhere by walking. This is in contrast to some someone who is driving or riding in a vehicle. Around 5,000 people are killed each year as pedestrians in traffic accidents. A pedestrian accident can sometimes be extremely severe. Injuries to the spinal cord, head, neck, or paralysis, broken bones, or loss of a limb can all occur to pedestrians struck by vehicles.
Common causes of pedestrian accidents include drivers refusing to yield, “blind” driveways that prevent drivers from seeing pedestrians, speeding, distracted drivers, drunk drivers, and reckless drivers. Some pedestrian accident incidences involve drivers texting on their smart phone or talking on a cell phone without a hands-free phone device.
