Pedestrian Accidents in California
A pedestrian is injured every 10 minutes in the United States. In California, more than 800 pedestrians are killed in crashes on our roadways each year. It is estimated that more than 80% of all California pedestrian crashes will end with injuries. A pedestrian accident happens very suddenly and unexpectedly and can leave victims suffering from serious injuries that will have a major impact on their health and quality of life. The cause of every pedestrian accident must be carefully investigated by authorities. However, some common causes include driver inattention, speeding, reckless driving, and impairment. Unfortunately, a substantial number of pedestrians are either injured or killed in crashes that were caused by someone else.
