Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California

Modesto, CA – David Lawson Killed in Accident on CA-99 (John G Veneman Fwy)Pedestrian accidents claim the lives of hundreds of people across California each year. These accidents are more likely to result in catastrophic and fatal injuries due to the fact that victims are unprotected against the impact of motor vehicles.

In cases where victims lose their lives as a result of reckless and negligent drivers, it is imperative that surviving relatives reach out to a wrongful death attorney in California immediately to explore legal options available to them.
