Thousands of people sustain injuries and lose their lives due to pedestrian accidents in California. Thousands of people are sent to area hospitals with serious or debilitating injuries that can cost them thousands of dollars and forced time off of work. These injuries can play a major role in reducing the quality of life for the victim. People who choose to walk or ride their bikes are extremely vulnerable to the impact of large, fast moving vehicles. Oftentimes, if involved and injured in a pedestrian collision, pedestrians usually suffer traumatic head injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and damages to internal organs. 

Many injured pedestrians require hospitalization and have to spend months going back and forth to treatment, therapy, and rehabilitation. Sadly, not everyone is always able to successfully recover from their injuries, and the rest of their life may be affected. In fact, numerous victims are left permanently disabled from their injuries.
