Pedestrian Accidents in California
Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable crash victims in our state. When a pedestrian accident occurs, it normally involves death or serious injuries for the pedestrian. These crashes occur very suddenly and unexpectedly. Often, they are caused by negligent motorists who are either inattentive or distracted at the time of the collision. Last year, California accounted for about 15% of all total pedestrian fatalities in the nation, in addition to the many more that were injured.
Following a California pedestrian accident, it is normal to have questions about your legal rights. If you tragically lost a loved one in the crash, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Under California’s wrongful death law, family members may be entitled to bring a legal claim on behalf of their loved one. This includes the right to receive compensation for categories such as lost wages, loss of companionship, medical bills, burial costs, and possibly more. However, your rights could be limited unless you take the proper steps. Before speaking with anyone or attempting to handle matters on your own, please contact us to see how we can help.
