Pedestrian Accidents in California
Motor vehicle accidents have a devastating impact on the lives of victims across our state. Each year, hundreds of thousands of victims are left with severe injuries that require emergency treatment. Here in California, we see our fair share of these life-changing crashes. Given the vulnerability of pedestrians during crashes, these individuals are more likely to suffer from injuries that require extensive medical care as a result of motor vehicle collisions. In many instances, pedestrians have to go through emergency surgery and spend months recovering from their injuries.
There are instances where victims of pedestrian accidents are able to take legal action against those who cause them harm. After filing a personal injury lawsuit, a victim will need to prove that negligence existed at the time of the crash. This involves proving to the court that the driver owed the duty of care, the driver breached the duty, and, as a result, the claimant suffered injuries. As a result of the injuries, victims must also prove they suffered damages. The term damages is used in reference to medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other consequences of crashes.
