Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California

California saw the 15th highest rate of fatal pedestrian accidents between January and June of 2017 with an estimated 352 deaths during that time. These unfortunate statistics are often due to the complete vulnerability of the victim at the time of impact, which leaves pedestrians at a higher risk of suffering serious or even fatal injuries.

Deadly accidents can occur at any time, resulting in not only the pain and suffering of losing a family member but the burden of extremely high expenses as well. While it may be difficult, it is terribly important for bereaved family members to understand that they may likely have substantial rights at this time.
