Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most catastrophic accidents because pedestrians are not protected by gear like helmets or seat belts, and they are vulnerable parties on the road. These accidents leave pedestrians at risk of sustaining serious injuries. This is why it’s vital for all drivers to remain attentive and aware of the other people around them.
