A brief look into pedestrian accidents in California

Unlike motorists, motorcyclists, and even bicyclists, pedestrians have minimal protection against vehicle collisions and any blunt force injuries or traumas. Pedestrians can suffer intense traumatic injuries from the initial collision with the vehicle or they can be dragged or thrown into the ground or nearby obstacles and objects. They can result in:

  •     Head and brain injuries
  •     Spinal cord injuries
  •     Internal bleeding or other internal injuries
  •     Crush injuries and amputations

Unfortunately, serious injuries like these often change the ability of accident victims to return to their lives. 

While several causes may contribute to pedestrian accidents,  according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
