Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in California
While car accidents are far more common than pedestrian accidents, there is still reason to be wary when traveling on foot.
Moreover, common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances and street corners, but even freeways like the 5 Freeway as well.
“Pedestrian accidents do not occur as much as motor vehicle accidents, but the pedestrian accidents tend to include more serious injuries,” says Tyler Toomey, a practicing attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
