Common Personal Injury and Pedestrian Accidents
The most common type of personal injury accident in the various Southern California cities are when a pedestrian comes into contact with the front of a moving car, bus or truck. Yes, cars and trucks and busses do run into each other, and that accounts for a significant number. However, the mass of people in Anaheim on foot tends to amount to the most pronounced number of injuries. Accidents can occur virtually everywhere: crosswalks, intersections, on sidewalks, small residential streets, major boulevards, major and minor parking lots, fast food restaurant ordering lines and even gas stations. Pedestrian accidents can involve passenger cars, large trucks, delivery trucks, motorcycles, and bicycles. If it moves, there is a good chance of a pedestrian accident occurring.
Driver negligence, distraction inattention is a factor in many pedestrian accidents. Drinking and driving also contribute to a number of fatal
Pedestrian accidents each year. The majority of pedestrian accidents occur on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Statistically, males are more likely to be struck than females, and children and the elderly are common victims. Elderly people are more likely to die in pedestrian accidents than children. In general, the faster a vehicle is traveling, the greater the injury and the higher likelihood of death occurring.
