Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California
Every year, hundreds of pedestrians die in fatal collisions in California. Many of these collisions are caused by negligence. A significant number of these accidents involve pedestrians. Due to the fact that pedestrians do not have protection during traffic wrecks, the chances of them suffering fatal injuries in collisions are dramatically increased.
Many people are killed as a result of speeding drivers. Those who are traveling too fast may not be able to stop in time to avoid striking pedestrians if they walk out into the road in front of them. In addition, speeding can result in drivers losing control of their vehicles and striking pedestrians.
Aside from speeding, distractions are also a contributing factor to pedestrian fatalities. Over the years, we have seen a dramatic increase in fatal collisions caused by drivers texting, talking, or engaging in other distracting behaviors. When drivers take their attention off the road while behind the wheel, it can have devastating consequences for other people, particularly pedestrians, nearby.
It is nearly impossible to predict how other motorists will behave behind the wheel when traveling near busy roads. Unfortunately, reckless and negligent actions continue to contribute to the high number of fatal accidents that we see here in California. If your loved one has died as a result of a fatal pedestrian crash, it is crucial that you seek the guidance of a wrongful death lawyer in Los Angeles immediately.
