Pedestrian Accidents in California
Every single year, pedestrian crashes in the state of California leave thousands of people with injuries. Pedestrians are especially at risk of suffering severe injuries due to the fact that they do not have anything protecting them. Unlike passengers and drivers and motor vehicles, or even bicyclists or motorcyclists, pedestrians do not have helmets, steel cages, or anything to keep them safe. As a result, we see countless people suffer from severe head trauma, paralyzing spinal cord injuries, and even compound fractures due to these crashes.
Pedestrian crashes can result in both immediate and long-term consequences. Innocent pedestrians who are harmed in these motor vehicle accidents often have to go through months of therapy. When people are hurt in pedestrian crashes, they often have legal options available to help them recover.
