Anyone who has been involved in a pedestrian accident understands the shock, misperception, and trauma that can result as a repercussion. In the case of a pedestrian, though, all of this is combined with the fact that a pedestrian has virtually no protection when struck by an automobile. Pedestrians can be terrified, crushed, and have limbs distorted by the impact they endure in a traffic crash.
