Who Is Liable for a Pedestrian Accident?
If you were injured in an accident, our firm will take immediate action
to determine liability. While it may seem obvious that a driver should
be at fault for collisions involving a pedestrian, this isn't always
the case. Some accidents are caused be negligence or reckless behavior
of a pedestrian. Whatever the case, we will work actively to prove fault
and fight for the justice and support you deserve.
One or more of the following parties may be responsible for your injuries:
- The driver of the vehicle
- The owner of the property
- The city, state or public entity (if improper safety signs and equipment
caused the accident)
We can use the cause of your accident to help strengthen your case, such as:
- Driving unsafely for the weather conditions
- Use of drugs or alcohol
- Distraction or preoccupation
- Failing to yield to right-of-way signs, crosswalks, or speed limits
- Disregard for traffic signals or traffic flow
Obtaining the Compensation You Deserve
If you were a pedestrian who was struck by a negligent driver, it is important
to know that you have rights under
personal injury law. Pedestrians often suffer from fractures, spinal injuries, brain trauma,
or even death as a result of a car and pedestrian collision. These injuries
are often expensive, and many people do not know where to turn or who
to trust during such a difficult time.
At the Law Office of Scott Righthand, P.C., we stand ready to use our knowledge
of the California legal system to help you retain the compensation that
you deserve. If you have questions about your eligibility to file a lawsuit,
