Pedestrian Accidents in California
Pedestrian crashes often result in far more serious injuries for victims. Due to the fact that they have no protection during accidents, victims are more likely to suffer severe and traumatic injuries that impact their lives forever.
Unfortunately, many accidents are a result of drivers who engage in acts of negligence. Drivers who travel above speed limits are likely to cause severe pedestrian accidents in our state. Speed limits are put in place for a reason, and when drivers exceed them, they put everyone on the road at risk. Pedestrians are especially vulnerable since they have no protection against an oncoming vehicle.
Distracted drivers are one of the most common causes of crashes in California. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are no exception. With the increase in technology use, more drivers are becoming distracted by their phones and other devices while behind the wheel. This takes their attention away from the road and can lead to them not seeing a pedestrian in time to avoid an accident.
Finally, drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians also contribute to the problem. Pedestrians have the right of way at crosswalks and intersections, but too often, drivers ignore this fact and barrel through without stopping. This puts pedestrians in danger and can lead to serious injuries or even death.
