Generally speaking, pedestrian accidents are caused by traffic accidents involving motor vehicles. As a matter of fact, pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to be vulnerable and seriously injured as opposed to motor vehicle occupants. Thus, both drivers and pedestrians should be extremely vigilant and cautious while on the road.
