California Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents take place multiple times per day across California. Due to their nature, these types of collisions tend to be more dangerous and deadly than other types of accidents. It is estimated that approximately 80% of all California pedestrian crashes will result in injuries. Last year, more than 900 pedestrians were killed across our state, and thousands more sustained injuries. Some common injuries that occur in a pedestrian accident include broken bones, head injuries, back and spinal cord trauma, strains, sprains, and more. If you or a loved one were hurt in a crash, you should speak with a California pedestrian accident attorney right away.
Following a crash, you may have valuable and important legal rights. This includes the right to receive compensation for your losses.
