California Pedestrian Accidents
A pedestrian crash in California typically happens in a sudden and very unexpected way. Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable crash victims on our local roadways and are likely to suffer serious injuries when they are struck by a car. In fact, according to statistics, it is estimated that more than 75% of all reported California pedestrian accidents will result in injuries to the pedestrian. Sadly, most injuries suffered in these types of accidents are also severe in nature. Some common injuries include broken bones, head trauma, brain and spinal cord injuries, and even death.
A pedestrian accident and its cause must be carefully investigated by authorities. In some instances, the accident could have been prevented, and a negligent driver was responsible. If this is the case, then the injured pedestrian may have certain legal rights. California law allows crash victims to receive payment for their lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills, and possibly more if they were hurt in a crash that was someone else’s fault.
