Were You or a Family Member Hit by a Car While Walking?
Fair Oaks and Citrus Heights, California, Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Pedestrian accidents occupy a unique place in personal injury law. Although pedestrians are generally afforded the right-of-way in California, the driver of the car will often receive the benefit of the doubt. Investigating the facts behind what really happened along the shoulder of the road or at an intersection takes experience.
If you or a member of your family has been injured in a pedestrian accident, don’t assume that an insurance company will step forward and take care of you. In many cases, pedestrian accidents involve liability on the part of the auto insurance, as well as the city or owner of the private street or parking lot where the accident occurred. You need experienced legal help investigating the facts and fighting to protect your rights against all insurance carriers involved.
California is a comparative negligence state. Even if you or your child was partially at fault for a pedestrian accident, you may still have a case to claim money damages for the percentage that was the driver’s or property owner’s liability.
