Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable when walking the streets of Long Beach or any other Southern California city. Pedestrians have nothing to protect them or soften the impact in the event of a traffic accident. Even at low speeds, pedestrian accidents can involve serious injuries, leaving victims in pain and temporarily or permanently disabled. Contacting a qualified pedestrian accident attorney as soon as possible may help recoup compensation for wounds and medical bills.
The Shocking Statistics
Records show that pedestrian-involved collisions in Long Beach climbed for the third consecutive year, up to 356 individuals. In addition, fatalities from vehicle-versus-pedestrian collisions spiked from six to 13 last year, according to data provided by the Long Beach Police Department. 
Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Drivers involved in accidents involving pedestrians may be negligent in a variety of events:
- Traffic rules are disobeyed
- The driver is distracted, impaired or intoxicated
- Drivers failing to yield right of way at crosswalks
