Pedestrian Accident in Santa Clarita
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable victims of traffic accidents. A pedestrian has no protection from the force and impact of an accident and will often suffer serious and even fatal injuries due to an accident. According to statistics, more than 80% of all reported California pedestrian accidents will lead to injuries for the victims. A substantial percentage of these injuries are serious in nature and can lead to long-term hospitalization and highly expensive medical care. This is not to mention the physical and emotional toll that a pedestrian accident can have on victims as they move along the long road to recovery.
Many pedestrian accidents occur because of negligent drivers. These motorists may fail to see or fail to yield to pedestrians, thus causing a serious accident. Each pedestrian accident will be closely investigated by authorities in order to determine legal responsibility for the collision. In a number of cases, the driver will be at fault, which will then give the pedestrian a right to bring a personal injury claim under California law. Given the seriousness of pedestrian accidents, these claims can be valuable and should only be handled by an experienced attorney.
