Car Crashes in Fresno

Thousands of these victims injured are not even traveling in vehicles at all at the time of their accidents. Instead, these pedestrians are traveling on roads and sidewalks throughout the state. These accidents send tens of thousands of people to area hospitals where they receive emergency medical treatment for their injuries. Depending on the type of collision, the chances of serious and life-threatening injuries can be higher.
California pedestrian accidents are more likely to leave victims with broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries, all of which require extensive medical treatment. There are many instances where car accidents are caused by the actions of other motorists.
