Pedestrian Accidents

Have you been hurt while walking along a street?

Unfortunately, pedestrians are injured every day in California. In fact, pedestrian fatalities are on the rise and over 4,000 pedestrians are killed each year and over 69,000 are injured.

In California, a pedestrian is a person on foot or riding something other than a bicycle, such as a skateboard. A person driving a car generally has to yield to pedestrians. However, pedestrians still have to exercise due care for their own safety.

When pedestrians are struck by cars or other vehicles, the injuries are often severe.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has great information on how pedestrians can stay safe. Check its publication, “Everyone is a Pedestrian!”
