Personal Injury Lawyer

California has several right of way laws that apply to the pedestrians. These laws include the obligation of the drivers to exercise due care and lessen the speed of their cars while approaching a pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk.

Authorities will thoroughly look into the speed of the driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs also played a role, whether or not there was any mechanical issue with the car, and whether or not the motorist was reckless at the time.
