California Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents in California cause thousands of injuries and hundreds of deaths every year. Pedestrians are often at greater risk of sustaining severe injuries or even losing their lives in auto accidents. This is because they travel completely unprotected. If they become involved in a traffic accident with a large, fast-moving vehicle, they usually sustain severe injuries that can land them in the hospital for a prolonged period of time. Prolonged hospital stays often cost a pretty penny and can be overwhelming and exhausting.
