When a motor vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the injuries are almost always severe. The size of the motor vehicle and the lack of protection for the pedestrian lead to injuries such as:
- Amputations of one or more limbs
- Brain injuries, traumatic or otherwise
- Paralysis, total or partial
- Injuries to the spinal cord
- Injuries to the neck and/or back
- Broken bones frequently, if not usually, result
Unfortunately, the pedestrian is often thrown or dragged by the car by the force of the impact.
Drivers often cause accidents with people on foot because of the following factors:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Ignoring stop signs
- Disregarding signal lights
- Talking on a cell phone
- Texting while driving
- Talking to passengers
- Failing to yield at a crosswalk
- Ignoring what normal and/or reasonable people would see around them
