Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California
Each year, more than 900 people lose their lives in pedestrian accidents throughout the state of California. This is due, in part, to the dramatic increase in the number of pedestrians we are seeing out along our roads. Now, more than ever before, we see numerous people out walking and jogging. The increase in total pedestrians has encouraged government officials to enact laws and regulations to protect those traveling outside of vehicles. Regrettably, these accidents only continue to increase.
The mental and financial consequences of fatal accidents are draining. Most fatal accidents force families to spend tens of thousands of dollars on unanticipated funeral costs, burial expenses, and more. Not only are the immediate impacts devastating, but the loss of an income can make it hard for families to move forward. When victims lose their lives in preventable accidents as a result of negligent drivers, it is crucial that their families consult with an aggressive legal team in their area.
