California Pedestrian Accidents
A pedestrian crash can, and often does, result in severe injuries and even death for victims. When a crash takes place, it must be closely investigated by police in order to determine its cause. Pedestrian accidents can be especially complicated because it is not always apparent what happened. There may be few witnesses, or the crash may have taken place in a dark area where visibility was an issue. Either way, officials will make a determination as to who is at fault. The responsible individual may face charges for their role in the accident. More importantly for victims, the option of a civil suit is also available.
California law provides a remedy for those who have been injured by someone else’s negligence.
