Pedestrians are afforded the same guidelines as motorists and are protected by state traffic laws. Unfortunately, drivers may be unaware of this or fail to drive safely around the pedestrians, which could lead pedestrian accidents that cause personal injuries or even fatalities for the victims. If the pedestrian survives the accident, the victim may suffer from both physical and mental trauma.
