The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that every eight minutes, a pedestrian is injured in a car accident. Considering the potential for serious injuries when a pedestrian is hit by a moving vehicle, this figure is very alarming.
In many instances, pedestrian accidents are caused by the negligent actions of a driver. Some common causes include:
- Driver distractions
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Failure to yield the right of way to a pedestrian
- Improper turns at an intersection
