Walking around your neighborhood or in a major city can seem like a relaxing thing to do from time to time, and it is. It can be nice to enjoy the outdoors on foot but, unfortunately, there are risks when it comes to doing so. This is especially true if you are in an area where traffic is at an all-time high. Pedestrians do not have the same protections as those in large passenger vehicles. This means that they are likely to become seriously injured or even killed in an accident. In 2018, there were 893 pedestrians killed on California roads and many others sustained injuries. If you have been hurt in a pedestrian accident, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney who has your best interests in mind.
