Pedestrian Accidents in California

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, fatal pedestrian accidents in California rose by at least 32.8 percent from 2012 to 2016. Auto-pedestrian collisions are so-often fatal due to the absolute defenselessness of the victim, as well as the reckless behavior of blatantly irresponsible drivers.
