Pedestrian accidents occur when a car or SUV strikes a pedestrian. These accidents can occur when a driver runs into a pedestrian crossing a street or onto a pedestrian walkway. This is often due to a lapse of attention, intoxication, or negligence in driving.
Pedestrian accidents can cause some of the most serious injuries to the entire body, including the neck, back, shoulders, limbs, knees, head and torso. Usually all pedestrians involved are injured, and these accidents are especially dangerous to children. If you are a pedestrian struck by a car it is important that you seek medical attention immediately should any symptoms begin after such an accident.
