Walking is an ideal way to improve your health and enjoy the beauty of San Diego. Yet when you walk through a big, traffic-dense city such as San Diego, there is a serious risk of being hit by a motor vehicle.
In fact, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association, the number of pedestrian deaths on U.S. roads is on the increase – a surge attributed to an increase in dangerous driving habits, heavier vehicles and inadequate infrastructure, such as sidewalks, crosswalks and lighting.
If you are pedestrian who has been injured due to driver negligence – or a loved one of someone who suffered a fatal pedestrian accident – you can recover compensation. In most cases, you will have to deal with an insurance company to receive the compensation you need in the aftermath. Claims can be complicated, and insurers, with their teams of accident personnel and legal staff, generally do everything possible to limit your payout.

Pedestrian Accidents in San Diego and the U.S.
At one point or another everyone is a pedestrian, and as a result pedestrian accidents occur with alarming frequency in the U.S., most commonly in high-density urban areas.
According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, drivers in this country struck and killed 3,434 people in the first half of 2022 – up 5%, or 168 more deaths, from the same period the year before. This troubling data follows a 40-year high in pedestrian deaths in 2021 and continues a decade-long trend of more people dying while walking on U.S. roads. And in addition to a rising number of pedestrian deaths, the Department of Transportation says another 76,000 pedestrians are injured in roadway crashes every year.
Unfortunately, few of us plan for such an event, and even fewer understand the process or how to protect ourselves thoroughly in the aftermath of an accident.

In general, under California law, you have the right to take legal action seeking compensation from anyone whose unreasonably dangerous conduct caused your accident, as well as against anyone who has a legal obligation to answer for that conduct.
