San Diego Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Legal Help for Injured Pedestrians
Pedestrians are completely vulnerable to the dangers surrounding them. When pedestrians are hit by a car, truck, or motorcycle, they are bound to suffer serious injury, and possibly death.
If another party’s negligence or reckless behavior caused the accident that injured you or killed a family member, you deserve to be compensated for your losses. But don’t expect the at-fault party and insurance company to offer you a fair payout - they won’t do that unless their feet are held to the fire. If you’ve never dealt with insurance companies before, you may not realize that they’re not the benevolent characters their commercials portray them to be. Insurance companies are businesses, and they are out to make the biggest profit possible.
Our legal team at Jurewitz Law Group hates to see injury victims get screwed by insurance companies that only care about their bottom line. We’ve tangled with insurance companies before, and we know how they operate. To find out more about your legal rights and options, call a San Diego personal injury attorney at Jurewitz Law Group for a free consultation by dialing (888) 233-5020 today. If we represent you, you pay nothing upfront. We only collect our fee if we win you the compensation you deserve.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 5,997 pedestrians were killed in the U.S. in 2016.
Common Causes of Pedestrian-Car Collisions
All too often, pedestrians are hit by drivers who fail to exercise proper caution on the road. Some accidents may involve an extenuating circumstance, such as glare, adverse climate, or bad road conditions; but many can be explained by the driver’s own wrongful actions, for example:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Distracted driving
- Failing to address stop or slow signs, school zones, and crosswalks
- Trying to pass a stopped school bus
Pedestrians can do their part to protect themselves by wearing visible and/or reflective clothing, especially at night; crossing the street only at designated crosswalks; and staying on the sidewalk.
