Pedestrian Accidents

Driver error is one of the top leading causes of pedestrian accidents. Although it is the driver’s responsibility to create a safe environment by pay attention on the road, being aware of their surroundings, and obeying all laws, many fail to do so. With no protection around your body, many pedestrian accidents end in severe injuries that require long term medical treatment. All types of injuries, whether physical or mental, should be addressed and treated properly. The cost of the treatment you receive, or any other type of cost that are incurred from an accident, is not something you should have to pay if they were caused due to the negligence of another.

Most Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents:

Speeding in a school zone
+ Running red lights: When someone decides to run a red light, many drivers tend to look for vehicles before going and forget to look for pedestrians.
+ Reckless Driving: Swerving in and out of lanes, being on the phone, being intoxicated, etc. are all examples of reckless driving that led to pedestrian accidents.
+ Reversing without looking: Although the backup camera is a nice tool, it does not show you all your surroundings. Many drivers fail to look around them before reversing.

What if I wasn’t in a crosswalk during the pedestrian accident?

When a car hits a pedestrian, they are typically found at-fault, regardless of whether the pedestrian was at a crosswalk or not. However, each accident has their individual factors that can change how a situation is viewed. It is best to consult with a personal injury attorney so they are able to provide you with a better understanding of your own individual case.

What if I was partially at fault for the accident?

You are able to still recover compensation for the damages that occurred during the accident. However, the compensation will be reduced. The reduction depends on what percentage of fault you are found at.

How can a pedestrian attorney help me with my case?

At Coria Law, we prioritize treatment of our clients because it is important that all injuries are addressed and cared for properly. Our office works with many medical doctors and facilities across Southern California. With the resources we have, we are able to get you into all types of medical treatment needed right away.

Secondly, we take on the responsibility of obtaining compensation from the responsible party. Many insurance companies and at-fault parties will low-ball victims without attorneys. Surprisingly, many people take those offers because they do not fully know what their case/situation is worth. An attorney would be able to evaluate your case and fight for a fair compensation.

How much does an attorney charge for their services?

At Coria Law, we work on a contingency basis. Thus, if we don’t win, you don’t pay! This is provided to all of our clients in writing upon them hiring our firm.
