Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California
California is known for being 15th in the U.S. when it comes to fatal pedestrian accidents. California actually protects the rights of pedestrians at all times; however, pedestrians are still injured and killed every year across the state. Some of the leading causes include negligent driving such as distractions, drunk driving, speeding, and other reasons. Police will continue their investigation and, at that time, those who have had to say goodbye to a loved one will have the power to move forward with a wrongful death claim to receive compensation.
