Pedestrians are always at risk for being injured doing daily tasks like walking through a parking lot, or crossing the street, as vehicle drivers often fail to exercise proper caution when encountering pedestrians, or completely ignore them while driving poorly. Driver negligence is a leading cause of accidents of this nature, and therefore serious bodily injuries to pedestrians, in the United States.
If a car strikes a pedestrian, they have no external protection, no metal framework to shield them. Thus, their body has to absorb the impact, which is often fatal, and pedestrians involved in these accidents are lucky to be alive.
