Pedestrian Accident Resources
The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that, on average, a pedestrian is killed every two hours and injured every eight minutes in traffic crashes. Pedestrian accident resources can help you avoid a collision and find the help you need if you’re in a crash.
