As a pedestrian, you follow all the posted signage and cross only at crosswalks. When you’ve done everything right, it feels devastating and unfair to be involved in an accident. Unfortunately, an inattentive driver can put your health and safety at risk in the blink of an eye. Depending on the circumstances of impact, your injury can severely disrupt your life and the life of your family. If you are feeling confused and in pain, you may need to consult with a pedestrian accident lawyer.
At Blackstone Law, you’ll find an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer who can guide you through your case. We know how frustrating it can feel when you’ve been seriously injured because of someone else’s carelessness. You may be eligible for compensation for physical pain and suffering, loss of love and companionship, rehabilitation costs, out of pocket expenses, and lost wages. Although it may feel premature to pursue legal action, it is vital to protect your right to damages and compensation. In some cases, injuries that seem minor can worsen over time. If you do not pursue a claim in a timely manner, you may be unable to recover the resources you need to pay future medical bills.
According to the Department of Transportation (DOT), Los Angeles is one of the most dangerous cities for pedestrians. Distracted driving is at an all-time high, putting pedestrians at increased risk of injury. Impaired and texting drivers are almost always at fault for collisions, although they suffer little injury. In fact, the burden of injury disproportionately affects pedestrians. Over 90 percent of all pedestrian collisions result in serious injury to the pedestrian.
On average, a pedestrian dies every 2 hours as a result of an accident. If you’ve been injured, don’t wait to contact a pedestrian accident lawyer.
The majority of pedestrian accidents occur near dawn or dusk. The reduced visibility for drivers, compounded with the grogginess or end of day exhaustion is a deadly combination. If your loved one was the victim of a fatal pedestrian accident, you may need to speak with a wrongful death attorney.
