Pursuing Compensation After A Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Serving Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties for over 20 years.
With an ever-increasing population of almost 40 million people in California alone, pedestrian accidents occur frequently and are extremely common. In 2011 alone, approximately 69,000 pedestrians were injured—a figure which prompted the U.S. Transportation Secretary to declare pedestrian safety as a top priority for the department.
Not surprisingly, pedestrian accidents often result in catastrophic injuries that will inevitably require exponentially higher medical expenses and much longer-lasting consequences than the average automobile accident. If you have suffered injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one, make sure you work with an experienced, dedicated team of pedestrian accident lawyers. They can protect your interests and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Who Represent Injured Victims
We represent clients in injury and wrongful death claims arising from pedestrian accidents. In most cases, these claims involve extremely aggressive defense. It is therefore especially important to have an aggressive and experienced attorney for your accident, due to the complexity and variability of the governing state laws. For example, California is not a “no-fault” state, which means that recovery for personal injuries and property damage under a liability insurance policy depends on who was at fault. Moreover, insurance companies are aware of the higher risk of a catastrophic injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents, and because of this, will relentlessly fight to avoid having to pay the accompanying expenses of such injuries.
Our practice of over two decades has afforded us the capabilities and knowledge to repeatedly stop insurance companies from trying to skirt their legal responsibilities, getting you the maximum compensation that you are entitled to.
After a hit-and-run accident or other pedestrian accident, do not accept the first offer from the insurance company. Its representative will offer you a settlement that seems generous at the time. However, by accepting this offer, you are waiving your right to bring a lawsuit. In almost every case, these offers are inadequate. Furthermore, they will not cover the complete long-term costs of medical expenses and other damages that result from an accident.
