Pedestrian Accidents in California
Without a doubt, pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable victims when it comes to motor vehicle accidents. These victims are unprotected during accidents, which dramatically increases the chances that they will suffer severe injuries. Regrettably, many innocent victims are left with debilitating injuries due to drivers who act negligently.
One of the most common is distracted driving. Drivers who are distracted while behind the wheel are more likely to hit pedestrians than those who are not. When drivers are looking at their cell phones or talking to passengers in the vehicle, they do not have their eyes on the road ahead. As a result, they are likely to not see pedestrians in order to avoid collisions.
Another common cause of pedestrian accidents is motorists who fail to yield. This can happen when drivers do not see pedestrians crossing the road or when they are not paying attention to their surroundings. Running red lights at intersections is also a leading cause of pedestrian accidents.
