Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, fatal pedestrian accidents in California rose by at least 32.8 percent from 2012 to 2016. Auto-pedestrian collisions are so-often fatal due to the absolute defenselessness of the victim, as well as the reckless behavior of blatantly irresponsible drivers. It is extremely important for victims and bereaved families to protect their rights and to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions.
