Los Angeles is home to more than 4 million people, with more than 50 million visitors throughout the year.  Because of its iconic landmarks and tourist attractions, pedestrian safety is a major focus of local officials and government agencies.  

Yet, according to the Los Angeles Times, despite high-profile initiatives and efforts, pedestrian deaths have surged more than 80 percent since 2015, killing more than 134 people.  Meanwhile, more than 14,000 pedestrians were injured in LA. during the course of four years, from 2012-2016. 

With only a 20-minute commute between the City of Angels and Alhambra and a high senior population, the concern for citizens and vehicular traffic here is just as serious. In the first five months of 2019, there were already 17 pedestrian-involved crashes in town, an average of 3.4 per month.  

Compensation for injury or loss 

If you have been seriously injured, or have lost a loved one due to a pedestrian accident, you may have legal rights to recover expenses related to medical treatment, lost wages, and additional monetary needs.  

When an event occurs in which someone else may be at fault or responsible for the accident, an individual or a family can pursue legal action for restitution and justice. Ellis Injury Law personal injury lawyers can provide a free, confidential consultation to understand the details of the accident, identify potential reparations and discuss your potential options.   

During your discussion with an Alhambra pedestrian accident lawyer, you will discuss: 

Factors and liability

When evaluating the potential liability of another party, an Ellis Injury lawyer will ask questions to determine the cause of the accident and the sequence of events that led to the injury or fatality. Factors can include environmental characteristics such as weather-related accidents, alcohol involvement, distracted drivers and road conditions. 

 However, speeding is often the most prominent factor in whether someone survives a pedestrian and car-related crash. The L.A. Times noted that a pedestrian has a 90 percent chance of survival when struck by a vehicle moving at slower speeds, 20 miles per hour or less. Yet when vehicle speeds are 40 mph or higher, the chance of survival significantly decreases to only 20 percent.  

Evidence 

One of the primary reasons to hire a personal injury attorney is to gather evidence and proof of liability to support your claims. With more than 25 years of winning serious injury lawsuits, Ellis Law’s seasoned professionals can help to collect video surveillance from the incident, testimonials from supporting experts and witnesses, photographic evidence of the location, and navigate complicated legal processes that may indicate the government or company is responsible.  

While it can take as little as a few days to gather some pieces of evidence, others may take months or years depending on the situation and parties involved. Since California’s statute of limitations for filing a claim is two years, it is critical to get started as early as possible, regardless of personal recovery efforts or pending resolution with insurance companies.
