Why Do You Need An Attorney?
Pedestrian accidents often involve serious personal injuries. Because of this, the defendant’s insurance carrier may try to place some of the blame on you. One of our Ontario personal injury lawyers will thoroughly investigate your case by:
Obtaining all evidence from the accident, including photos and video surveillance, eyewitness statements, police reports, and more.
Working with healthcare professionals to determine the total expected medical expenses.
Determining your total damages, including medical bills, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.
Negotiating with all parties involved, including the at-fault party’s insurance company, in order to secure a fair settlement on your behalf.
Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable group around the roadway. The average passenger vehicle weighs 4,000 pounds and can inflict catastrophic injuries when striking a person. An Upland pedestrian accident lawyer commonly sees the following injuries in the aftermath of a crash:
Any injury that inhibits a person’s daily activities
In these cases, a victim is likely to need extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. If they cannot work while they recover, they could lose the income needed to support themselves and their families.
Pedestrian accidents are common in this state. The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) shows us that there were 811 California pedestrians killed and over 15,000 injured during the latest reporting year. Many of these incidents occur in crosswalks, parking lots, or on sidewalks, all areas where the pedestrian has the right-of-way. In the event of a wrongful death, we can fight for your the justice of your loved one and work to secure compensation for your family.
