Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California
Each year, nearly 900 pedestrians lose their lives as a result of motor vehicle accidents in the state of California. These accidents take place far too often. Unfortunately, countless families are forced to endure the overwhelming consequences of losing a loved one.
Although our state constantly enacts laws to protect pedestrians, we continue to see them lose their lives as a result of drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. Some of the leading causes of fatal pedestrian accidents that we see across California include:
- Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who failed to yield the right of way to pedestrians
- Drivers who make left turns at intersections without looking
- Drivers who are distracted by their cell phones, food, and other objects
- Drivers who run red lights and pass stop signs
