Pedestrian accidents are more common than you might think, but for a victim, the trauma is anything but ordinary. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on average, 324 people require medical treatment each day for injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident. In Illinois alone, more than 5,200 pedestrians were injured, and more than 100 pedestrians were killed, by motor vehicle drivers in 2009, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.
