To pursue the just settlement you and your loved one deserve, you need the representation of an experienced Vista personal injury attorney. The San Diego County offices of Jurewitz Law Group have been representing Vista, California accident victims for over 15 years. We've secured our clients substantial settlements.

California Leads the Nation in Pedestrian Fatalities--Again

For the second year in a row, California totaled the highest amount of pedestrian fatalities in traffic accidents in 2013 with 701 deaths. That’s a lot when you consider that the overall pedestrian death toll for 2013 was 4,735 in the United States. One out of 6 pedestrian accident deaths happen in California.

Pedestrians Have the Right of Way

This adage was taught to us in grade school, and in most cases, still applies. The operator of a motor vehicle has the duty of care to look out for people walking the streets and sidewalks. While the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds the average weight of a contemporary adult American male to be about 180 pounds, the average weight of a passenger vehicle is about 3,455 pounds. Any way you look at it, the pedestrian ends up being the loser in a collision between the two.

Damages in a Vehicle vs. Pedestrian Accident

If you or a family member has been injured in a pedestrian accident with a motor vehicle, you have the right to file a personal injury claim. Damages for a personal injury claim can include:

  • Current medical bills, including ambulance fees and emergency room costs
  • Future medical bills (such as reconstructive surgeries and plastic surgeries)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Cost of physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Household and vehicle modifications (such as wheelchair lifts and ramps)
  • Mental anguish and the resulting therapy needed
  • Property damage and loss
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Loss of occupation and earning capacity
  • Permanent injury or disability
  • Wrongful death damages

Statute of Limitations in Pedestrian Accident Cases

In the state of California, you have two years from the date of injury to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim. For this reason, it is important to act quickly and contact a skilled personal injury/wrongful death attorney. The Southern California offices of Jurewitz Law Group can provide you and your family with professional, aggressive, and comprehensive representation.
