Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California
In 2020, more than 6500 pedestrians lost their lives as a result of crashes in the United States. Hundreds of these accidents take place right here in California. We see pedestrians frequently lose their lives as a result of drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions.
One of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents is speeding drivers. When a driver is speeding, they have less time to react to something in their path and are more likely to cause a serious or fatal accident. Due to the fact that pedestrians are already more vulnerable to suffering severe injuries, if they are struck by speeding drivers, the impacts can be devastating.
Distracted driving is another leading factor in auto crashes with pedestrians. Drivers who are distracted by their phones or other devices are more likely to fail to see a pedestrian in their path, leading to a collision.
Drivers who fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians are also a leading cause of pedestrian crashes here in California. When drivers fail to yield, they often do not see the pedestrian until it is too late, resulting in a serious or fatal accident.
