Car accidents don’t just happen to motorists. In fact, pedestrians are even more at risk of being involved in a car accident than most drivers. Bundled with gaps in insurance coverage and lack of protection between the pedestrian and the vehicle, even minor pedestrian accident cases are life-altering.
Every year more than 5,000 pedestrians are injured or killed in traffic accidents. And this number doesn’t seem to be dropping anytime soon. Comparing the first six months of 2016 to the same period of 2017, we see these accidents increase by 23.6% alone.
