San Diego Pedestrian Crashes
The fact is that being a pedestrian can be dangerous, especially in California. The state has a pedestrian fatality rate that is shockingly 30 percent higher than the national average. In 2018, 689 pedestrians lost their lives in the state after being involved in a vehicle collision.
In most cases, pedestrians will suffer much more severe injuries when hit by a motor vehicle, even if that vehicle is a motorcycle. The resulting injuries can be devastating and the financial damages can be frustrating, to say the least.
