Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California
Every year in California, more than 3,800 lives are unexpectedly lost in auto collisions. Many of these crashes can be attributed to drivers who engage in reckless and careless behaviors. Quite often, innocent individuals suffer fatal injuries in accidents caused by speeding drivers, drivers who fail to obey stop signs, and drivers who operate their vehicles while under the influence.
When drivers exhibit these and other acts of negligence while operating their vehicles, they directly endanger the lives of others sharing the road. After experiencing the loss of a loved one, it is imperative to hold the negligent parties accountable when their reckless and careless actions result in the loss of life.
