Los Angeles Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents account for a disproportionate number of serious injuries and deaths when comparing traffic statistics across our state. According to the statistics, it is estimated that nearly 200 people are killed in Los Angeles pedestrian accidents each year. We also know that more than 80{1370d1a44a2a36111fd8aac2ccbc5aad49bce4f615ec80e8124ffd285aa21fc2} of all pedestrian crashes will result in some type of injury to the victim. The reason is simple: pedestrians are completely unprotected from the impact of a collision. These accidents happen quickly, which can give pedestrians little chance to take any evasive measures to avoid a collision.

If you or a family member have been affected by a Los Angeles pedestrian crash, you may be entitled to compensation. The crash must be carefully investigated in order to determine how it took place and which party should be responsible. In cases where the driver was at least partially at fault, victims could receive a recovery for their damages. This includes the right to be compensated for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and more. In cases of a fatal crash, family members can step in and file a lawsuit on behalf of their deceased family member.
