Pedestrian Accidents in California
Pedestrian accidents in the state of California send thousands of people to area hospitals with life-changing injuries. In many cases, victims are left with broken bones or they suffer brain injuries that cause them overwhelming pain and suffering. Many injured pedestrians require hospitalization and have to spend months going back and forth to treatment, therapy, and rehabilitation. Although there are several treatment options available for victims, they come at an extraordinary cost. Many people are simply unable to afford the costs of care, which forces them to go without the assistance they need to recover.
The unfortunate truth is that the majority of pedestrian accidents are preventable. Instead of being safe while traveling along our roads, we see pedestrians injured due to drivers who are distracted, intoxicated, or driving recklessly. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of another person’s actions, they may be able to pursue legal options available to them. In some cases, victims can work with a pedestrian accident attorney in California in the aftermath of their accidents to make sure they are in the best position possible to recover.
