We love walking around, just like many other people around the city. After all, city life is great for getting out and about without a vehicle. Whether you are walking to a restaurant during your lunch break or heading to the park with your family, you should be safe. Unfortunately, there are times when other people’s negligence can cause you harm.
Do you know where you to turn if you are hurt when out are out walking around?

California continues to have problems when it comes to pedestrian accidents. For the latest reporting year, there were more than 14,000 pedestrian accident injuries and 867 fatalities.
Those numbers are incredibly high. Closer to home, San Diego saw more than 700 pedestrian accidents victims that were injured or killed.
Unfortunately, we know that these accidents often result in serious injuries, ones that can lead to massive medical bills. Pedestrians have no protection from vehicles or other objects they encounter. When they get hit, they usually face two impacts: one with the vehicle and one with the ground. Any of the following injuries can lead to hospitalizations and possibly even long-term rehabilitation:
Will your insurance cover the necessary medical procedures?
If you have to miss work, will you be able to afford your household expenses?
All too often, pedestrian accidents happen because people are careless around pedestrian right-of-ways or crosswalks. Drivers who are in a hurry sometimes speed through areas where pedestrians cross. This can cause major injuries. Sometimes drivers are distracted by their phones. If a driver is busy sending a text message or watching a video, then they are not watching the roadway as they should.
We know that in California, drunk drivers are responsible for more than 25 percent of all traffic-related deaths. Impaired drivers often do not even slow down or hit the brakes until after the hit something or someone.
