“I didn’t see them!” That’s usually the first thing someone says when they’ve been involved in a vehicle-pedestrian crash. The latest statistical year shows that 5,977 pedestrians were killed in U.S. traffic crashes – one every 1.5 hours, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration figures. In addition, 129,000 pedestrians were treated for non-fatal crash-related injuries. While these figures remained about steady compared with the prior year, the numbers are still alarming.

Life doesn’t always go as planned. When you married, you did the responsible thing and purchased life insurance policies for both you and your spouse.
