Los Angeles Pedestrian Injuries

The statistics of pedestrian injuries and deaths at the mercy of motor vehicles are disheartening. Each year in the United States alone, approximately 110,000 pedestrians are injured and 60,000 are killed. Children are more likely to be involved in pedestrian accidents due to their small stature and unpredictable behavior (lack of knowledge of pedestrian laws, or distraction while playing a game.) Just the thought of the probable outcome of a collision between a 3,000 pound car and a human body is enough to understand the severity of injuries that can occur in a pedestrian auto accident.

At the Pacific Attorney Group, we help Los Angeles victims of pedestrian injury get compensation not only for medical expenses but for any loss of wages and emotional damages as well. Our extensive experience and knowledge of California auto accident and personal injury law is what keeps our firm winning cases and helping people.

Responsibility

In any pedestrian injury both the motorist and pedestrian share responsibility in regards to their awareness of the situation and adherence to traffic laws. The most common forms of negligence that lead to pedestrian injury are:

  • A driver operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • An inattentive or preoccupied driver
  • Reckless driving such as speeding or turning without looking for pedestrians
  • Disobeying of traffic laws
  • Failure to yield to a pedestrian in a situation that warrants it

If you have been the victim of a pedestrian injury, the person responsible may try to lay blame upon your shoulders or may pressure you by saying the accident was due to negligence on your part, when in fact their irresponsibility or negligence caused the accident.

Contact our law offices today and get not only the protection you need but the compensation you deserve so you can move on with your life.
