Car Accidents in California

California is a dangerous place for pedestrians. According to statistics, the pedestrian death rate across our state in 2022 was 1.29 per 100,000 people. For comparison, the national rate of pedestrian deaths is 1.04 per 100,000. With a substantially higher death rate and thousands of reported injuries each year, the risks to pedestrians are quite apparent. Given the circumstances surrounding most pedestrian crashes, victims are likely to suffer serious injuries or death when they are struck by a vehicle on California’s roadways.

The cause of every pedestrian crash must be carefully investigated by authorities. Determining how the accident took place is important when deciding who should be held legally responsible for a crash. The facts of many pedestrian accidents are often disputed. If you or a loved one have been impacted, it is important to seek legal help as soon as possible.
