Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California
A pedestrian accident can and often does result in serious and life-altering injuries for victims. Pedestrians have more than an 80% chance of being injured when they are struck by a vehicle. It goes without saying that pedestrians are among the most vulnerable crash victims on our roadways. This is because they have no protection from the major force of being struck by a vehicle. Pedestrians often suffer serious and fatal injuries due to these collisions. Police must carefully investigate every pedestrian accident. However, in many cases, they will find that the driver is at fault due to some type of negligence.
