Orange County is a dangerous county for pedestrians. It has a warm and inviting year-round climate, tons of outdoor activities, shopping and a gorgeous coastline. Who wouldn’t want to walk as much as possible and take in the beautiful outdoors? Unfortunately, residents and tourists who choose to walk rather than drive are at a greater risk of harm. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to be killed in a car accident than occupants of a car.
In 2015, there were 162 fatal traffic accidents in Orange County. Pedestrians accounted for 51 of those deaths. Pedestrians account for more than 30% of traffic accident fatalities in Orange County. Pedestrians who are able to walk away from a traffic accident will still likely be faced with incredibly painful and long-lasting injuries. An experienced pedestrian accident attorney can help accident victims recover damages to compensate for the harms that have been imposed.
If you or a loved one is a pedestrian injured in a traffic accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent party who caused your accident. At Law Offices of John Rapillo, we are here to help you and answer your questions. Call our knowledgeable accident attorneys at the 949-675-5060 today for a free consultation.
