Pedestrian accidents, whether they involve small sedans or large vehicles like school buses, may bring about devastating results. If a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the individual may be at-risk for developing serious injuries or even fatalities. With the population in Delaware growing, the possibility of dangerous pedestrian accidents increases, too.
