Pedestrian Accidents, California

Pedestrian accidents are those that occur between a moving vehicle and an individual. Some of the most horrendous accidents occur when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle during normal daily activities, such as:

  • Crossing the street
  • Jogging, rollerblading, pushing a stroller
  • Helping a child or elder get to their destination on foot
  • Sitting on a bus bench or sidewalk café
  • Simply standing alone or in a small group

These pedestrian accidents are generally avoidable and often caused by driver inattention, drunk driving, texting or speeding. The Johnson Attorneys Group has an outstanding record of helping personal injury victims. In recent years they have recovered more than $50 million for accident victims and their families.

California Pedestrian Accident Statistics

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2010, in California:

  • There were 2,715 traffic fatalities (nationally there were 4,280)
  • 599 of these were pedestrian fatalities
  • 22.1% of the total fatalities were pedestrian fatalities
  • This is the fifth highest percentage of all 50 states

Pedestrian fatalities are often caused by driver inattention and distraction, meaning they are largely avoidable. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, it is advisable to safeguard your legal rights to compensation by obtaining the counsel of an experienced pedestrian accident attorney.

Compensation for Pedestrian Accidents

If you were injured in a pedestrian accident that was partially or fully the fault of a driver, you may seek compensation from that negligent party. Compensation is intended to help restore the injured party to the state that they were in prior to the accident. Monetary compensation may include the following:

  • Hospital treatment
  • Medical care
  • Rehabilitative treatment
  • Loss of earnings
  • Pain and suffering – mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium – spousal, sexual relations
  • Property damage – car repair or replacement
  • In cases where the pedestrian loses their life, survivors may seek wrongful death compensation
