In crowded cities and busy streets there are many situations where a pedestrian could be in danger of being struck by a vehicle. In the rush of traffic, those who are trying to get to their destination in a timely manner, are often more focused on themselves and the next move, rather than their surroundings and any potential danger they may be imposing on others. In essence, it is negligence that causes pedestrian accidents. When a driver is not looking, or they make a mistake in following traffic safety laws, then those around them become susceptible to accidents and/or injuries.
Pedestrians generally have the right of way on the streets; this is because of the vulnerability of a human compared to that of a vehicle.
Due to the size and weight of the average person compared to the size and weight of a moving car, the pedestrian could be very seriously injured if not killed in a collision. When a pedestrian is hit by a moving vehicle, injuries that are sustained include broken bones and other bruising. Sometimes the injuries include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and even wrongful death.
