California is home to hundreds of pedestrian injuries every year. It is estimated that 900 pedestrians die in traffic accidents in California each year. A total of 893 people lost their lives in wrecks last year, a 26% increase in that time. It is important to note that the most common cause of vehicle accidents is driver error or negligence. 

The majority of car accidents in the United States are caused by the negligence of the driver. A driver’s negligence can be caused by a variety of factors, such as distracted driving, texting while driving, fatigue, and intoxication. The injuries suffered by pedestrians are usually more serious than those caused by regular vehicle collisions. In most instances, pedestrians are left completely unprotected when walking.
