California Pedestrian Injury Lawyer

  • Pedestrian Accidents
    • While riding any vehicle, you exercise protection; bicyclists use helmets to protect their head. Similar protections are used by bikers. Automobiles have seat belts and airbags to protect occupants from damages. However, most pedestrians are unprepared for any such accident, and therefore end up sustaining severe injuries
    • Whether injured by a vehicle or property defect, a pedestrian may recover damages for the injuries suffered if someone else’s negligence caused or contributed to the incident. Negligence is the failure to do (or not do) something that a reasonable person in a similar situation would, to protect others from foreseeable risks. To establish negligence in a pedestrian accident, the injured person (the “plaintiff”) must prove that the person at fault (the “defendant”):
      • Owed a legal duty to the plaintiff under the circumstances
      • Failed to fulfill (“breached”) that legal duty through action or inaction
      • Caused an accident or injury involving the plaintiff
      • Harmed or injured the plaintiff as a result
  • The medical treatment for these injuries can be costly, throwing you under debt. In case you or your loved one is a victim of a pedestrian accident, you are entitled to compensation.
