More than 800 pedestrians will lose their lives in crashes that take place in California this year. Pedestrians are very vulnerable to death or serious injury when they are involved in crashes with vehicles in our state. Many pedestrian accidents take place on busy streets and highways and at night or during the early morning hours when visibility is lowest. Drivers often fail to see or yield to pedestrians, resulting in a collision.
Under California law, a pedestrian who suffers injuries in a crash with a vehicle may have certain important and valuable legal rights. This includes the right to recover for damages, including pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and potentially more. A complete investigation into the crash must be undertaken in order to determine the ultimate responsibility for any injuries sustained.
