Injuries have gone up by 19% and deaths by 4.2% across the nation according to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. People who live in urban areas are especially vulnerable as they are more likely to walk or take public transportation. Congested roadways, lack of sidewalks as well as distracted drivers all raise the risk of pedestrian injuries.
Pedestrians as well as drivers should be as alert and cautious as possible. When a pedestrian is hit, serious injury or death can result because of the lack of physical protection. Injuries such as loss of limbs, broken bones, brain and spinal cord damage and internal injuries may require long term treatment and can be extremely expensive. Rehabilitation, or the possible need for lifelong medical assistance can drive the injury victim to ruin.
