San Diego Auto-Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians are at a serious disadvantage when involved in a crash with a motor vehicle. Despite measures to make vehicles safe for everyone on the road, pedestrian fatalities continue to rise across the country. Pedestrians are exposed and completely unprotected when struck by an oncoming car.
14,000 pedestrians were injured in California in 2018. From 2014 to 2018, pedestrian fatalities in the state increased by 26 percent. In some cases, injured parties can recover lost compensation with the help of a qualified California pedestrian injury attorney.
