Drunk-driving, speeding, and other dangerous driving behaviors, can be costly to other motorists. However, they are especially dangerous to pedestrians. Statistics show that there are at least 70, 000 pedestrian accidents in the US annually; about 4, 500 of these accidents end in death, while the rest result in substantial injuries. Equipped with nothing to protect their bodies from impact, victims of pedestrian accidents are always exposed to much greater danger than most other car accident victims.

The usual victims of pedestrian accidents are children, older adults, and alcohol-impaired pedestrians. Sadly, many victims are left with all the consequences of the accident, and above all with the costly medical treatments, without being aware that they may be entitled to substantial compensation for their damages.
