Pedestrian Collisions in California
We are now seeing more people out walking, jogging, and traveling on foot than ever before. The drastic increase in people utilizing this method of exercise and transportation has provided numerous benefits for people statewide. Although there is an array of benefits, walking does not come without risk. In fact, more than 900 pedestrians are fatally injured in auto accidents throughout the state of California each year.
Although there are numerous laws in place to protect people traveling on foot, there is no way to guarantee their safety. This is especially true when pedestrians are traveling on roads with negligent and reckless drivers.
Thousands of people are injured in pedestrian accidents as a result of drivers who are speeding, texting, talking on the phone, driving impaired, or engaging in other unsafe actions while operating their vehicles. Unlike people traveling inside cars, pedestrians do not have adequate protection during accidents. As a result, they end up sustaining more severe injuries than others involved in collisions. When victims are seriously injured in accidents, it is crucial that they attempt to protect their legal rights. Reaching out to a knowledgeable personal injury attorney in California can help to ensure your legal rights are protected after being hurt in a crash.
