Pedestrian Accidents in California
Serious motor vehicle crashes are reported daily in California. Victims are often left with serious injuries that impact their lives forever. Spinal cord injuries, internal organ injuries, and even severe cuts in lacerations can impact your life forever. Not only do victims deal with overwhelming physical and emotional pain and suffering, but many also face financial burdens.
Unfortunately, pedestrians who are involved in accidents are often left with more significant injuries than most other victims of crashes. The fact that pedestrians do not have any protection during accidents means that they are likely to suffer injuries that leave them permanently disabled forever.
In many cases, pedestrians are severely harmed in accidents due to the reckless and negligent actions of motorists. We see far too many pedestrians hurt in crashes caused by drivers who are impaired, distracted, speeding, or simply failing to yield the right of way to them.
