Pedestrian Fatalities in California
Nationwide, an average of 6,000 pedestrians die in traffic-related accidents every year. About 15% of those pedestrian casualties take place in California. While legislators strive to protect pedestrians as they share the roadways with motorists, they continue to be injured and killed at an alarming rate. In most cases, pedestrians are hit by vehicles driven by distracted, impaired, and reckless drivers.
You may be diligent in following the rules of the road and keep those around you safe. However, there is no promise that other drivers are going to do the same for you.
Any car accident can cause serious or fatal injuries for those involved. Pedestrians involved in accidents are at a greater risk of being injured since they are unprotected against the size and weight of the striking vehicle.
