Car Accidents in Bakersfield

Over 150,000 people are injured in automobile accidents throughout the state of California every year. A large percentage of these victims are pedestrians. Pedestrians are constantly traveling on roads and sidewalks throughout the state of California. These accidents, unfortunately, force tens of thousands of people into emergency medical treatment and lengthy hospital stays, not to mention long-term medical care in some situations. Depending on the severity and nature of the crash, the risk for serious and even life-threatening injuries can be higher. 

Pedestrian accidents in California often cause serious injuries including brain injuries, broken bones, and spinal cord injuries. These all require extensive and expensive medical care. In many instances, car accidents are caused by the actions of other motorists. These accidents can occur due to people performing negligent actions while driving, such as texting or using cellphones, speeding, intoxicated driving, ignoring traffic control devices, and engaging in overall 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.
