Pedestrian accidents claimed the lives of 4,735 individuals in 2013, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The majority of all pedestrian accidents are not caused by the negligence of the pedestrian, but rather, the negligence and recklessness of a driver. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, distracted driving, and inattentive driving are the most common causes of pedestrian accidents. An individual that is struck by a moving vehicle has little chance of surviving unscathed. Pedestrians often suffer serious injuries that can lead to financial and emotional damages.
