Pedestrian Accidents

Because of the physical forces at work, pedestrians often suffer the most severe injuries, or even death, when struck by a motor vehicle of any kind. An auto v. pedestrian accident is akin to smashing an egg with a sledgehammer. The results are devastating. Autos, trucks and even motorcycles can easily leave a pedestrian physically disabled for life and unable to provide for their own care.

Right of Way laws

California law virtually always defers the “right of way” to the pedestrian in such situations and the presumption is that the vehicle operator is the one with the “last clear chance” to prevent the accident. These two legal concepts are at the core of the Auto v. Pedestrian collision and our attorneys, paralegals and staff are experts in applying these concepts to your case to ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.

In California, a pedestrian who is hit in accident, but contributed to the accident taking place by being negligent, is still able to recover some damages. This is known as contributory negligence. In such cases, the pedestrian can still recover damages from the driver.

Pedestrian Accident Facts

Over 100,000 pedestrian accidents are reported in the United States each year, and more than 50,000 of those accidents result in death. This is a staggering statistic. Very often children and elderly persons are the victims of auto v. pedestrian accidents. Virtually half of auto v. pedestrian fatalities occur between three and four in the afternoon, when schoolchildren are prevalent on the road. If you or a loved one has been seriously hurt in a pedestrian accident, you may have questions about your rights to compensation. Be certain that the advice you seek is from a law firm highly experienced with pedestrian injuries.

Driver Negligence

Most auto v. pedestrian injuries result from negligence by the driver of the motor vehicle. Catastrophic injuries are almost certain when a person is struck by a motor vehicle. These accidents often result in brain or spinal cord injuries, broken bones, or paralysis. Recovering from such an accident can be a long, expensive process and in some cases, recovery may never come. While drivers are required to have insurance, many drivers only purchase the minimum required by law (currently $15,000 per person injured and only $30,000 per accident, regardless of how many people are injured).

With the devastating injuries caused when a vehicle strikes a person, that it won’t be enough to even cover the medical expenses. These policy limits, once exhausted, are unable to compensate the injured person for the other damages that come with their injuries such as lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and “loss of consortium” claims for the injured person’s loved ones.

Avoid being injured as a pedestrian!

As a pedestrian, you do have the right-of-way when crossing streets, but this does not mean that you can cross a street just anywhere. Traffic is always moving and if you cross in an unsafe place, you may be seriously injured or even killed. These incidents happen every day in the United States. Remember, look both ways when crossing the road and always keep a sharp eye out for traffic and traffic signals. Inattention is the leading cause of pedestrians causing accidents and is most common in children who may run into the street to chase a toy or pet. Remain vigilant, teach your children well and always pay attention.

We work hard to establish driver liability, ensure that our clients recover lost wages, receive compensation for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, and get the full range of the medical attention they need.

What Our Clients Say

Honestly can't say enough positive things about Lalezary Law Firm! I got into a severe car accident at the end of 2016 and they've been with me every step of the way ever since. Almost 4 years! I want to thank everyone there especially Caitlyn, Shawn, and Yasmeen. They have been responsive, helpful, and reassuring and I don't know what I would've done if I didn't have the legal support that I was able to get along the years. They are super professional and really helped me get through this hardship in my life. I would definitely recommend!!!

Last year I contacted your law firm when I got into a car accident. the gentleman that handled my case, his name was Cesar. Cesar was very helpful and compassionate about my situation. He helped me get my car fixed very quickly and was super patient with me. He answered all of my questions and ensured me that everything will be taken care of. Once my case was settled I ended up getting more than I was expecting, which was amazing. I highly recommended Cesar and this law firm to anyone that needs help.

I was a client to Lalezary firm for about a year, the staff is really nice and professional. I would get updates on the case status and when I did call I would usually get a call back within 24 hours. I really appreciate the work that was done for me. I got the most out of my settlement and when I called to have a break down of the costs, Genesis was very patient and gave me a break down on all of it. I will definitely recommend this law firm to friends and family, as well as call them in the future if needed (hopefully not soon).

I had gotten into an accident and had no idea what to do. Friends and family recommended I get a lawyer since I was not at fault. I found this firm and I was beyond impressed. They handled everything for me from car insurance questions to finding doctors for me to visit. After my accident all I had to do was make appointments with various doctors to help with my pain. I give five stars because this firm went above and beyond and continued to follow up with me. I highly recommend if you are in need of a lawyer to use them.

The team at Lalezary we’re amazing! I am not the kind of person to seek legal counsel, but I was hit by a car while riding a motorcycle and the driver’s insurance was avoiding my attempts to get reimbursed. They were able to not only get a settlement that replaced my motorcycle, but they found me physical therapy which was close to my work. Now I am back to where I was physically before the accident and I am able to ride a motorcycle again. They were always responsive to my texts, calls, and emails. They even would systematically check to see how I was healing and if the support they linked me to was satisfactory.

This law firm is a team of miracle workers! Lalezary Law Firm saved me from suffering at another law firm from Century City. My case manager Jonathan was able to gather all the details from my accident ( literally within a week! ) and keeping me updated consistenty to keep me at ease. They work diligently and keep at it until your case is completed. I went through a car accident that almost took my life away but thanks to the higher power and Lalezary Law Firm, you won't even hesitate to choose them because I felt trust and integrity throughout my case and I feel happier in my life, which in my opinion, matters the most at the end of the day.
