Pedestrian Accidents On The Rise In California

Every year, numerous California residents are injured or lose their lives in auto-pedestrian accidents — either while walking, jogging or riding their bicycles. The simple truth of the matter is that such incidents are on the rise nationwide. Distracted or impaired drivers are often to blame.

If you have suffered injuries or lost a loved one in an auto-pedestrian accident, our Santa Ana law firm may be able to assist you in seeking monetary relief for your losses. Learn about Katnik & Katnik Lawyers and our mission.

Severe Injuries Result From Collisions

Since pedestrians and bicyclists do not have a surrounding cage of metal, collisions with motor vehicles often lead to devastating injuries. Examples include:

  • Bone fractures
  • Broken bones
  • Damaged vital organs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries

The increase in SUV and pickup traffic on California streets has been blamed for more pedestrian accidents resulting in severe or fatal outcomes since these vehicles ride higher than cars. Combined with distractions such as cellphones, the risk of collisions has never been greater.

If you or a family member is the victim of an auto-pedestrian accident, you already know all too well the effects such an event can have on your life. You are living it every day. The emotional, physical and financial burden it has created is likely taking a significant toll on your family. Our law firm believes such burdens should not be yours to face alone. If driver negligence contributed to the accident, the law allows you to seek compensation for your losses.
