Pedestrian Fatalities in Bakersfield

A large percentage of victims end up losing their lives in these preventable accidents right here in our state. In fact, over 900 people end up passing away as a result of injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents in California each year. In many cases, victims end up losing their lives in accidents due to drivers who are distracted, impaired, or acting negligently while operating their vehicles.
