The injuries that pedestrians can suffer when struck by a motor vehicle always have the potential to be catastrophic or fatal. The simple physics of a collision between a 4,000-pound metal object travelling at high rates of speed and an unprotected individual can have devastating consequences.
It is an unfortunate reality that many drivers have fallen into the potentially deadly habit of only noticing other motor vehicles when they are scanning traffic. This leaves pedestrians in a danger zone where they cannot safely expect all drivers to look out for them while they cross the street.
In addition to the hazard of inattentive drivers, pedestrians must also contend with:
- Broken pavement
- Uneven sidewalks
Pedestrians can be seriously injured in a trip-and-fall accident under such conditions.
