Some people who may have been injured in pedestrian accidents may not realize that they could receive compensation for their injuries. If someone ran a stop or yield sign, went into a crosswalk, ignored a traffic signal, was speeding and hit you, you aren’t at fault.

A large majority of the time, a pedestrian has the right of way. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to get out of the way of a speeding car. We can conduct a comprehensive investigation to find out exactly which parties were responsible for your injury and then go about aggressively representing you.

PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS ARE MORE COMMON THAN YOU THINK

Studies have shown that somewhere near 33% of all road fatalities are pedestrians. If that number sounds very high to you, it is. It’s not quite three times the average across America, which means that technically, it can be more dangerous to be a pedestrian in southern California than in other parts of the country.

There tends to be a misconception that most pedestrian accidents occur during inclement conditions, but that’s not the case. A majority actually take place during normal weather conditions, although they are more common at night than they are during the day.
What can make pedestrian accidents all that more difficult is that kids and the elderly are at higher risk from them. You don’t have to be crossing a busy traffic intersection to be at risk of an injury like this, as a majority of them occur elsewhere on the road.

The truth is that there’s no way to be 100% safe from pedestrian accidents. You can do everything in your power to be careful, to be conscientious, and yet, if someone has too much to drink, doesn’t see you, is going too fast or something else, they could cause you great harm. When that happens, something has to be done.

Pedestrian accidents are probably the most dangerous accidents to be involved in.

This means that they wont charge you until your pedestrian accident case is finished.

COMMON PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

Every pedestrian accident is different, but the most common ones tend to be bone fractures. For a person of average height, a car usually comes up to their waist, so pelvis and leg injuries are common. Once you’re struck by the vehicle, you could fall and hit your head, causing further injuries.

If you’re a pedestrian struck by a vehicle, it’s important to get medical care as quickly as possible. Even if you feel fine in the moments after the accident, you don’t know what kind of internal injuries you may have suffered. The true impact of these injuries may not be known for several days or even longer.
