Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California
Pedestrian accidents are the cause of thousands of deaths across the United States each year. More than 1000 of these accidents take place right here in California. Unfortunately, no matter how many laws we have in place to protect those traveling on foot, we continue to see them harmed at an alarming rate.
Most of the pedestrian accidents reported statewide are due to negligence. We see countless victims lose their lives as a result of drivers who are speeding, failing to yield, and drivers who run red lights. Due to the fact that pedestrians are unprotected during accidents, they are at an increased risk of suffering severe harm or fatal injuries and accidents.
