Pedestrian Accidents in California
Every year, thousands of pedestrians are severely hurt as a result of car crashes in California. Although our state has multiple laws and rules in place to protect pedestrians from being involved in accidents, there are many cases where drivers engage in negligent and reckless actions that cause crashes. Pedestrians who are involved in severe collisions often suffer life-altering injuries. Pedestrians often suffer injuries like:
- Back injuries
- TBI is another head trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Neck and soft tissue injuries
In many cases, pedestrians who are struck by automobiles often become ejected across the road, increasing the severity of injuries that they suffer. Dealing with the aftermath of a pedestrian accident can be incredibly difficult.
