Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Yorba Linda, Carlsbad, Monterey Park, and Moreno Valley
Most of us understand what is meant by “sharing the road”. But this not only means sharing it with other vehicles but also the pedestrians who must traverse them. Drivers of motor vehicles have a particular responsibility when it comes to sharing the road with pedestrians. When an accident occurs between a motorist and a pedestrian, the pedestrian is typically the one who suffers the most serious injuries and often fatalities.
Dedicated to the Rights of Accident Victims
At Braff Injury Law PC, our Yorba Linda, Carlsbad, Monterey Park, and Moreno Valley pedestrian accident lawyers are dedicated to the rights of accident victims and their families. For decades, we have represented the legal rights of victims of pedestrian accidents to get the compensation they deserve after being injured during an act of negligence. If you or someone you love was involved in an accident while legally walking along a walkway, street, or road, we can help.
In many cases, pedestrian accidents involve the negligence of a driver. The causes are many. They include
- Impaired driving
- Distracted driving
- Failing to obey traffic lights and signs
- Turning through crosswalks
When an accident occurs between a pedestrian and a motor vehicle, the injuries are often severe and almost never in the pedestrian’s favor. The injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents can be both life changing and financially debilitating. These can include
- Fractures and orthopedic injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
These injuries can result in extensive pain, costly medical interventions, and can have staggering financial implications for the victim as well as the family.
Unfortunately, even while a victim has suffered these catastrophic injuries and may be hospitalized or unable to work, it is up to them to prove that another party is negligent. Most accident victims are over their heads when it comes to this type of overwhelming responsibility.
When a negligent driver has caused injury to a pedestrian, you can rely on our skilled team to take away this burden and ensure that they are held accountable. We gather evidence, advise you on your options, deal with the insurance company, and negotiate a fair settlement. If a fair settlement is impossible, we will take your claim to court.
We Recover the Financial Compensation You Need
Because pedestrian accidents can cause such serious and often permanent injuries, they can be extremely expensive to treat and often require lifelong medical care. We ensure that our clients receive the financial compensation they need in order to meet these short and long-term needs. These can include
- Compensation for all medical costs for current and future care
- Compensation for lost wages
- Compensation for any future earning potential
- Compensation of pain and suffering or emotional distress
- Wrongful death benefits for surviving family members
