Serious Pedestrian Accidents in the Bay Area, California
Thousands of lives are lost every year on California’s highways, major thoroughfares connecting large city centers, local streets, and beyond. In fact, troopers with the California Highway Patrol say that these serious incidents are on the rise. Officials reported close to 40,000 injuries and fatalities statewide in just one year and added that the risk of serious injury or even death is all too high on Golden State roads. This is particularly true for incidents involving pedestrians, which often cause catastrophic consequences for these vulnerable victims.
Unfortunately, these serious pedestrian accidents causing injuries or fatalities are a sad but common reality in California. When victims are injured in a pedestrian crash, they may have to deal with other drivers’ insurance companies, long-term physical pain, and expensive hospital bills. Oftentimes, as a result of these incidents, victims succumb to their injuries, leaving their grieving families to cope with emotional trauma and financial difficulties as a result of another driver’s negligence.
But the victims and their families affected by these wrecks can seek help from a California accident attorney. A skilled attorney in California can help victims seek justice and the fair compensation they deserve after suffering in an accident that occurred through no fault of their own.
