Valley Springs, formerly ‘Valley Spring’ and ‘Spring Valley’, is a census-designated community in California’s Calaveras County. This small community, which is situated outside of the state capital of Sacramento, measures less than 10 miles in size, and has a population of roughly 3,500 people.
The community dates back to the 1800’s, when the San Joaquin and Sierra Nevada Railroad constructed a narrow-gauge line connecting Valley Springs and the early settlement of Brack’s Landing. The railroad was later absorbed by the Southern Pacific Railroad, which replaced the narrow-gauge line with a standard-gauge line.
Valley Springs is also registered as a historical landmark in California, after it was determined that the town had a statewide historical significance.
Despite its small and fairly rural setting, residents of Valley Springs may still experience accidents, like bike or pedestrian accidents, which could require additional legal services.
Have You Been Injured in a Pedestrian Accident?
Pedestrian injuries caused by motor vehicles are all-too-common occurrence in communities across the United States. That is particularly true in many areas of California, especially in urban or other high-traffic areas. Despite the frequency of these types of accidents, it remains almost impossible to prevent them entirely – it is up to drivers to exercise caution when sharing the roads with pedestrians, and for pedestrians to take care when crossing roads.
However, pedestrians continue to face risks when sharing the roads with drivers. In fact, recent statistics indicate that traffic accidents cause pedestrian injury every eight minutes. Back in 2010, it was estimated that more than 70,000 pedestrians were injured in accidents involving trucks, cars or other motor vehicles. Unfortunately, around 4,000 pedestrians also lose their lives each year, due to auto or related accidents.
Though not all cases are the same, pedestrian accidents commonly involve injuries like:
- Head and neck injuries
- Spinal or other back injuries
- Broken bones
Those injured in traffic-related incidents may face a number of challenges related to their personal injury, including lost wages, reduced earning capacity, mounting medical or rehabilitative costs or pain and suffering.
