Fatal California Pedestrian Accidents

There are more than 700 reported pedestrian fatalities in California each year. California ranks among the highest in the nation for reported fatal pedestrian accidents. Unfortunately, pedestrians are always at risk when they are on the streets and highways in our state.

When a pedestrian crash occurs, a close investigation of the accident scene must be undertaken by investigators. Police will examine the crash site, take measurements, and look at all the physical evidence in an effort to determine how the accident took place. Ultimately, a decision will then be made as to how the accident took place and the appropriate party can be held responsible.
