Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable road users. They have no protection against a car or larger vehicle weighing thousands of pounds. It’s often impossible for them to get out of harm’s way in time.
It comes as no surprise that pedestrians can suffer serious or even fatal injuries in an accident. Possible injuries include the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken or fractured bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries
- Lacerations and concussions
- Skull fractures
- Neck and back injuries
According to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS):
Pedestrian Fatalities – California’s pedestrian fatality rate is almost 25% higher than the national average. No state has more pedestrian deaths on its roadways than California.
Pedestrian Injuries – More than 14,000 pedestrians are injured in road accidents annually in California.
