Pedestrian Crashes in California
Despite the many benefits of walking, pedestrians face an array of dangers on the road. It’s well known that pedestrians are at a serious disadvantage when involved in a crash with a motor vehicle. Pedestrians are largely vulnerable and unprotected in the event of a crash.
California is a particularly dangerous state for pedestrians with a pedestrian fatality rate 30 percent higher than the national average. In 2018, 689 pedestrians were killed in the state. Injured parties should consult with a qualified California pedestrian injury attorney to discuss possible compensation.
