When a car hits a pedestrian, the outcome is often catastrophic. A pedestrian has no protection from a heavy vehicle and the impact of such an accident may result in serious injuries or death. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident in Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Diego, San Bernardino, Ventura or other area in Southern California, you need to be aware of your legal rights and should contact an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer immediately.

Vehicles are required to give pedestrians the right-of-way. Crosswalks and walking signals are supposed to protect pedestrians, but the truth of the matter is that the majority of pedestrian accidents occur at non-intersection areas. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident that happened outside of a crosswalk, you still have rights. In fact, you are far more protected than any other accident victim, because a car against a pedestrian is a no win situation for the pedestrian.
Sometimes a pedestrian accident is caused by factors other than driver's negligence. There are cities that have done little to protect citizens and have failed to improve sidewalks, gutters or street lights, which can all contribute to a serious pedestrian accident. We have a strong track record when it comes to going after cities and municipalities.
