Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California
Fatal pedestrian accidents take the lives of countless people every day in the state of California. Unfortunately, hundreds of people end up passing away as a result of these accidents in our state annually. The majority of pedestrian accidents are preventable.
We see many people lose their lives as a result of speeding motorists, drivers who are distracted, and drivers who simply fail to yield the right-of-way. Losing a loved one in a fatal accident is one of the most devastating things a person can deal with. Unfortunately, families are often forced to deal with overwhelming financial and emotional impacts.
After losing a loved one, families have the ability to file wrongful death claims against the responsible party. To prevail, a family must be able to demonstrate negligence existed at the time of the accident. This involves proving that the driver owed your loved one a duty of care, the driver breached their duty, the driver's breach caused the accident, and you suffered damages.
