California experiences about 700 fatal pedestrian accidents every year. Pedestrian crashes can be a life-changing experience for victims and their families. A pedestrian who is struck by a vehicle faces a very serious and high risk of debilitating injuries and even death. Some common injuries experienced by pedestrians include head trauma, broken bones, internal bleeding, and permanent disfigurement. Certainly, the consequences of a pedestrian crash can linger for months and years after the event.
Following a pedestrian accident, the police will conduct a full investigation of the scene. This involves interviewing witnesses, taking measurements and completing a crash reconstruction in order to piece together the events which led up to the crash itself.
