California Pedestrian Accidents
Pulling over on the highway is always dangerous and isn’t advised unless it’s absolutely necessary. When you’re outside of your vehicle, you risk being struck by another vehicle and suffering severe injuries. Pedestrians are at a great disadvantage when involved in an accident with another car.
It’s an unfortunate truth that many motorists fail to notice pedestrians on the road. For this reason, many pedestrians suffer severe to life-threatening injuries. A skilled California pedestrian crash attorney can help injured parties pursue rightful compensation.
