Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California

From 2012 until 2016, fatal pedestrian accidents in California were found to have risen by around 32.8 percent, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. These types of collisions are so-often deadly because of the sheer lack of defense in place for victims, but also due to the reckless and sometimes blatantly criminal actions of negligent motorists. While it is incontestably challenging to suffer a sudden injury or the loss of a loved one, it is important for victims and their families to safeguard their rights in the moments following a sudden accident.
