Pedestrian accidents, also known as pedestrian knock-down accidents, can be one of the most severe accidents causing the most devastating injuries because the pedestrian's body is entirely unprotected when it is hit by a motor vehicle weighing several thousand pounds. The level of bodily injury caused when a motor vehicle hits a human being is usually severe and often catastrophic, causing serious injury, permanent disability, traumatic brain injury and/or paralysis. Often a pedestrian hit by a motor vehicle is killed, particularly if the motor vehicle is traveling at a significant rate of speed and/or the vehicle is larger and heavier than a small passenger car, such as an SUV, a bus, or a truck - though even a motorcycle or bicycle hitting a pedestrian can cause serious injury.
