Pedestrian Accidents in California

El Cajon, CA – Crash on SR-67 near Vine St Leaves Pedestrian InjuredPedestrian accidents occur every day in the state of California. These accidents leave thousands of people injured every year in our state. Regrettably, many of these accidents are completely preventable. Innocent people suffer debilitating injuries quite often as a result of accidents that are caused by drivers who are negligent. Common causes of these accidents include:

  • Passing stop signs: When going through intersections, it is important that drivers stop when they are required to do so. Regrettably, we see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who pass stop signs. When drivers pass through stop signs, they deprive other vehicles of a safe passage. This can cause serious accidents with devastating injuries.
  • Impairment: Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol are likely to lose control of their vehicles and crash into others. Unfortunately, impairment can significantly impact the driver’s judgment in their ability to make responsible decisions.
  • Failure to yield: When entering roadways, pulling out of driveways, or merging onto highways, it is important that drivers yield the right-of-way to others. Unfortunately, there are many instances where drivers fail to do so.

These acts of negligence continue to cause serious harm to innocent people traveling nearby. When pedestrians are involved in accidents, the chances of serious injuries are increased significantly. When pedestrians are injured in motor vehicle accidents due to negligent drivers, they have the ability to take legal action.
