Pedestrian Accidents in California
In a time like this, walking outside has increased in commonality. At the same time, pedestrian accidents have also spiked in popularity.
Pedestrian accidents are incidents in which someone walking or crossing a road is injured by a vehicle striking them. As a driver, it is your job to follow the speed limit and never use your phone. You should always be cautious of your surroundings.
“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. “Some of the worst pedestrian incidents involve minors because they are sometimes hard to see and they also ride bikes, skateboards, etc. Common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances and street corners.”
