Because pedestrians are without some sort of barrier between them and whatever the opposite side may be, pedestrian accidents present the opportunity to be very serious and cause significant damage. In fact, even if the vehicle is a bicycle, serious damages can be made when colliding at a fast speed with a vulnerable pedestrian.
What Are Some Common Pedestrian Accidents?
Not every accident is the same, for example if involving a vehicle factors such as vision impairment or poor road conditions can greatly contribute to the causing of the accident. While some factors may come into play there are also several driver faults which commonly occur such as:
