What is Considered as a Pedestrian Accident?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

What is Considered as a Pedestrian Accident?With the sheer amount of pedestrians and vehicles that are moving through California every single day, a shocking amount of accidents with pedestrians tend to occur. Unlike almost any other form of accident, these incidences are going to require the expertise of our Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer due to the unique laws associated with them. Here is a look at the laws involving these ordeals and when an accident can be legally called a pedestrian accident.

The laws regarding pedestrian accidents vary between every single state. Within California, one of these situations can be called a pedestrian accident if one of the party’s involved is not in any form of motor vehicle. This includes those who are walking, in strollers, in wheelchairs, and even occasionally those that are on bicycles.

Unlike the drivers that benefit from a long list of safety features, pedestrians are often going to be seriously injured if they come into contact with a vehicle. This is why drivers are obligated to give pedestrians the right of way at all times. Even the most diligent of drivers or pedestrians may find themselves in these painful and traumatic ordeals though, and it is going to require the services from one of our attorneys to get the compensation that you are legally entitled to.

Our personal injury attorney in Los Angeles is ready to take on all pedestrian accident cases and will devote the time and energy that is required into building a winning case for a quick and fair settlement.
