When you come in for your first appointment with our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys, we are all ears.

If our pedestrian accident attorneys are able to prove that you are not at fault in the accident, they will have a lawsuit prepared on your behalf and served on the driver of the car that hit you. The other party can choose to disregard the lawsuit, but it they do not respond within 30 days, you will be entitled to seek a default. Their other options are to reach an out of court settlement or to take the matter to court to be decided by a jury. Your lawyer will help you decide on the best strategy. He or she also collects no fee until your case is won.
