Often, pedestrians are at the mercy of drivers on the road. When a driver is reckless, they may cause harm to pedestrians. LA Car Accident Lawyers provides assistance for pedestrian victims of vehicular accidents.
[California, 4/5/2019] – In 2018, pedestrian fatalities reached a 28-year high. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), there were an estimated 6,277 pedestrian fatalities last year, 250 more than in 2017. The GHSA reports that pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. have increased a total of 41 percent since 2008 and now account for 16 percent of all traffic-related fatalities.
The growing number of Americans using larger vehicles, such as pickup trucks and SUVs, as well as drivers and pedestrians being distracted by their smartphones, result in the higher likelihood of fatal or life-threatening injuries.
As the number of pedestrian victims grows, there’s also a need for rightful representation and compensation. LA Car Accident Lawyers can provide this assistance, and more, for the benefit of pedestrians.
