Pedestrian Accidents in California
More than 14,000 pedestrians are left injured as a result of motor vehicle accidents in the state of California. Unfortunately, the number of incidents has drastically increased by nearly 26% between 2014 and 2018. Although our state is constantly enacting laws to protect pedestrians traveling along our roadways, we continue to see innocent victims suffer severe injuries due to drivers who engage in negligent actions.
Pedestrians who are involved in crashes are more likely to suffer from significant injuries. Pedestrians have nothing to protect them during accidents, which means they are more likely to suffer traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and severe compound fractures in accidents.
Unfortunately, the majority of pedestrian accidents that take place in our state are a result of drivers who engage in reckless in negligent actions. Some of the leading causes of these crashes include:
- drivers who failed to yield the right of way to pedestrians
- drivers who are distracted while behind the wheel
- drivers who run red lights or past stop signs at intersections
- drivers who turn at intersections without checking the crosswalks
