Pedestrian Accidents in California
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable travelers on the road at any given time due to being totally unprotected. Pedestrian accidents result in the death of more than 6,000 people per year in the United States. In California, nearly 1,000 people are injured in pedestrian crashes annually. Drivers must always stay alert and aware in order to keep pedestrians as safe as possible. Pedestrians must also look out for drivers at all times to avoid becoming involved in collisions.
Suffering injuries in a pedestrian accident can be a strenuous and challenging experience. The injuries that result from pedestrian crashes are often more severe than those that result from other types of accidents. Pedestrians often suffer broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and other severe injuries that require immediate and prolonged medical care.
