Pedestrian Accidents in California

According to nationwide statistics, a pedestrian is struck and killed by an automobile nearly every two hours. Furthermore, pedestrian accidents in California have been reported to make up 11 percent of all vehicle-related deaths in the state. This disparaging data is often due to the immense vulnerability of the victim at the time of a collision, which leaves pedestrians at risk of sustaining severe or even fatal injuries.

Deadly accidents can happen at nearly any time, resulting in serious pain and suffering, as well as extremely high expenses. While it may be very difficult, it is important for both victims or bereaved family members to know that they may have substantial rights during such an unfortunate time.
