Pedestrian Accidents in California
Pedestrian accidents happen each day across California. Sadly, these accidents will result in injuries about 80% of the time. Very serious or even fatal injuries are more likely to involve pedestrians than other injured parties to a car accident. Sadly, about 900 people lost their lives in California pedestrian crashes last year, a number that made up about 15% of all pedestrian fatalities in the entire country. Many crashes occur because drivers fail to see or yield to pedestrians. Driver distraction is a main cause of pedestrian accidents, as motorists tend to fail to see the victim until it is too late.
When a pedestrian accident happens, it must be carefully investigated by authorities. Victims or family members have legal rights following a pedestrian crash. However, it is best to speak with an attorney who can properly advise you on how to proceed in the aftermath of a collision.
