California Pedestrian Accidents
A pedestrian accident in California can lead to serious and devastating injuries for victims. Many pedestrians are seriously hurt or killed each year when they are involved in accidents that take place across our state. Unfortunately, a large majority of these victims were innocent individuals who were merely in the wrong place at the wrong time when the accident took place. Careless and inattentive drivers are a major cause of California pedestrian accidents, and their actions will result in many crashes that could have been otherwise prevented.
If you or a loved one have been affected by a pedestrian crash in California, you should have a full understanding of your legal rights.
