Fatal Pedestrian Accident in Los Angeles

Pedestrian accidents are among the most serious and catastrophic accidents in Los Angeles. As the second-most populated area in the country with over four million residents, it is certainly very common to see pedestrians in and around the roadways. Drivers should always remember that the same traffic laws still apply when they are in the presence of pedestrians. Failing to yield the right of way or driving in a reckless manner that leads to a crash can result in the driver being responsible. Sadly, many Los Angeles pedestrian crashes occur because of careless driving. Speeding, distraction, and impairment can all play a role in crashes that involve pedestrians.

Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable accident victims. This seems self-explanatory as pedestrians do not have the same protection from an impact as they would if they were traveling in a vehicle. It is common to see traumatic injuries, such as head injuries and broken bones, in connection with pedestrian crashes. Unfortunately, these injuries can be serious in nature and long-lasting when they do occur. In the worst-case scenario, a crash may even lead to death.

Following a pedestrian crash in Los Angeles, police will carefully survey the scene. Determining the cause of an accident is important because it can determine who should be held legally responsible for their actions. In cases of injuries or death, it provides the victim with a clear picture of the person who should be held accountable.
