Pedestrian Accidents in California

With many major urban areas, including San Francisco and Los Angeles, California is a bustling hub of activity. It is, therefore, quite common to see pedestrians out and about on the local roadways. Drivers most often encounter pedestrians at crosswalks and at intersections. Not surprisingly, this is where a large number of pedestrian crashes will occur. Many pedestrian accidents in California also take place at night or in the early morning hours when visibility is poor, making it more difficult for drivers to see a pedestrian in the road. Still, many pedestrian accidents can be avoided through the use of ordinary care.

According to statistics, about 25% of all traffic-related fatalities in California involve pedestrians. Los Angeles County has by far the highest number of reported pedestrian accidents and fatalities in the state. When a pedestrian crash occurs, the injuries are often very serious due to the lack of protection from the force of the collision. Each pedestrian crash will be carefully investigated by authorities in order to determine how it occurred. If you or a loved one have been affected by a Los Angeles pedestrian accident, you should seek legal help as soon as possible.
