The truth is, children are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roadways when it comes to these accidents. This is due to the fact that children are not always aware of the dangers on the roads around them. Hundreds of pedestrians are killed and thousands are injured every year in New York. Your life could be turned upside-down in the blink of an eye due to a pedestrian accident that was caused by another party.
