Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California

Thousands of people end up suffering fatal injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents in the state of California. Hundreds of people are not traveling inside vehicles at all at the time of their accidents. Unfortunately, between 2014 and 2018, the number of fatal pedestrian accidents reported statewide increased by over 26%. Unfortunately, we see many accidents take place due to drivers who engage in negligence. Some of the leading causes of fatal pedestrian accidents include:

  • Drivers who are distracted while behind the wheel
  • Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who fail to yield to others
