Sacramento Pedestrian Accidents
Roughly 6,000 pedestrians die in traffic-related incidents annually across the country. In the Golden state, nearly 15% of those accidents take place. Although legislators constantly work to protect pedestrians who share roads with drivers, they continue to be victimized daily. In many cases, pedestrians are struck by vehicles operated by distracted, impaired, and reckless drivers.
You can be vigilant in obeying the law and protecting others around you on the road, Sadly, there is no guarantee that other drivers are going to take your safety into consideration while driving.
Any car accident can cause catastrophic injuries for those involved. Pedestrians involved in accidents are at a greater risk of being injured since they are unprotected against the force of vehicles.
