Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California

According to statistics, fatal pedestrian crashes take place in California approximately every two hours. Pedestrians face a great danger any time they are on the roadway in our state, as California consistently ranks among the most dangerous places in the nation for pedestrians. Most pedestrian accidents result in injuries and many of them are severe and life-altering.

Police must carefully investigate each pedestrian crash in order to determine who was at fault.
