California Car Wrecks
Pedestrian accidents are some of the most dangerous types of traffic accidents. Pedestrians travel without protection, putting them at serious risk for severe injury or even death if they become involved in a traffic accident with a fast-moving vehicle. Over 6,000 pedestrians are killed per year in the United States. Pedestrians often suffer severe injuries like broken bones, paraplegia, quadriplegia, spinal/brain injuries, and more. These types of injuries often require lengthy hospital stays and repeat surgeries in order to fully recover. Dealing with a situation of this nature can be overwhelming and scary.
Victims and their families may be severely impacted by the accidents they’re injured in. No one wants to become injured in an accident, however, injury accidents happen all the time. In worst-case scenarios, people sustain injuries so severe they eventually lose their lives. Over 3,200 people are killed per year in the Golden State due to vehicle collisions.
