Pedestrian Accidents in California
Every year, thousands of people are injured in pedestrian accidents throughout the state of California. Although any victim is susceptible to injuries, pedestrians are more likely to sustain critical and life-threatening injuries. Many victims require extensive medical treatment and hospitalization for their injuries. Children, in particular, are at an increased risk of suffering catastrophic and life-threatening injuries due to their size.
These unexpected accidents often leave victims with broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries, all of which require extensive medical treatment. There are numerous instances where car accidents are caused by the actions of other motorists. These accidents can include people texting or using cellphones while driving, drunk driving, speeding, ignoring traffic control devices, and engaging in unsafe driving behaviors. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of negligent drivers, they should consult with a pedestrian accident attorney in California as soon as possible.
