Pedestrian accidents are a common occurrence in Los Angeles. Launched in 2015, the city’s Vision Zero initiative was initially viewed as a flagship safety program that would prioritize the goal of eliminating traffic deaths by 2025.
But, as the Los Angeles Times reported in January, the city’s streets are actually becoming more dangerous – in particular for pedestrians.
In 2021, 486 pedestrians were severely injured by motorists here in Los Angeles. That figure represents a staggering 36% increase from 2020.
Moreover, pedestrian deaths rose 6% in 2021 – with a total of 128 tragic fatalities recorded on the streets of Los Angeles.
In the sections below, we will look at the Top 10 Causes of Pedestrian Accident Injuries. We’ll also review how to file a claim for financial compensation after a pedestrian accident with the leading personal injury and wrongful death attorneys at Dordulian Law Group.
Pedestrian accidents can result in serious and even catastrophic injuries. Due to the number of pedestrian accidents that often involve head injuries, long-term medical care is commonly required for trauma such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), concussion (MTBI), or post-concussion syndrome. Accordingly, avoiding a pedestrian accident at all costs is imperative.
When you’re injured as a pedestrian due to another driver’s negligence or carelessness, you may be eligible to recover financial compensation for various types of damages:
