Pedestrian Accidents in California
Being involved in a pedestrian accident can have a devastating impact on your life. Unfortunately, thousands of people in California are left with serious injuries due to these accidents every single year. The majority of pedestrian accidents that we see here in California are preventable. Innocent people continue to suffer serious injuries due to negligent drivers traveling nearby.
Pedestrian accidents are often caused by drivers who fail to yield. When drivers do not let pedestrians travel across the roadways and designated crossing areas, they can cause accidents that lead victims of serious injuries.
Another common cause of pedestrian accidents here in California is drivers who are intoxicated. When drivers are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they may not be able to react in time to stop in order to avoid striking a pedestrian. In addition, they may drift off the roadway and strike innocent pedestrians who may be traveling on sidewalks near the road.
Other common causes of pedestrian accidents here in California include speeding drivers, drivers who run red lights, and drivers who turn at intersections without checking for pedestrian traffic.
