Pedestrian accidents result in some of the most devastating, life-altering injuries. Victims and their loved ones must contend with costly medical treatment, new disabilities, lost income/wages, and a tremendous amount of physical and emotional trauma. When these incidents are fatal—as they often are—the impact is even more severe. However, you are not without hope.
If you or your loved one was hit by a car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, or scooter while on foot, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. California law allows victims of negligence to take legal action against the liable parties—and Selarz Law Corp. can help. Our Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyers have handled hundreds of cases and have recovered more than $20 million for our clients. We are prepared to put our extensive experience and aggressive approach on your side.
Who Is Liable for Pedestrian Accidents?
Like other types of personal injury cases, successful pedestrian accident claims are dependent on proving liability. In other words, you must show that another person or party was responsible for the accident that left you or your loved one injured. This may be the case if a careless driver hit you while you were in a crosswalk or if a bicyclist ran into you because he or she failed to yield to a red light.
In the simplest terms, if a person acts carelessly, recklessly, wrongfully, or otherwise negligently, he or she is liable for the accident and any damages you sustain.
Pedestrians are essentially entirely unprotected. Because of this, when they are hit by large, heavy vehicles, they are at risk of suffering very serious injuries. These injuries often have long-lasting implications and can impact nearly every aspect of a victim’s life. Even seemingly “minor” pedestrian accidents can have major consequences.
If you were involved in a pedestrian accident, it is important that you reach out to an attorney who understands the unique challenges you are facing on the road to recovery. At Selarz Law Corp., we strive to help all of our clients recover the maximum compensation they are owed, both for their immediate present needs and their ongoing, long-term care.
While every case is unique, many victims of negligent pedestrian accidents are able to recover compensation for the following damages:
- All medical expenses associated with the incident
- Lost wages and/or income
- Lost or reduced earning ability (disability)
- Pain and suffering (physical and mental/emotional)
- Lost or reduced quality of life
This list is not exhaustive, nor is it guaranteed. It is in your best interests to speak to a Los Angeles pedestrian accident attorney to learn more about your particular options.
