Pedestrian Accidents in California
Unfortunately, studies have revealed that every 111 minutes about one pedestrian loses their life in California. The leading cause of most pedestrian accidents is drivers not paying attention as they’re approaching intersections or making turns. California law states that drivers must give pedestrians the right-of-way at all times, even if the pedestrian truly doesn’t have the right-of-way. Because pedestrians don’t wear auto-shield gear to protect their limbs, they’re highly prone to sustaining injuries once a car strikes them.
