Arcadia Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Arcadia Pedestrian Accident Attorney- Andrew L. Ellis Andy Ellis is one of the most successful truck accident lawyers in Los Angeles California. Meet Mr. Ellis and find out how he helps his clients who are injured in pedestrian accidents.

Southern California is famous for many things, but walkability is not one of them. This area has one of the highest pedestrian accident rates in the nation. No one is more vulnerable to serious injuries – or death –in a motor vehicle collision than a walker or runner. In just seconds, your life changes, and you may face months or more of recuperation and potentially permanent disability. Along with spiraling medical expenses, you are unable to work, and may never return to your previous type of employment.  

At this difficult time, the Arcadia personal injury lawyers at Ellis Injury Law can help. Do not rely on insurance companies, as they want to settle for as little as possible and the amount is frequently insufficient to care for a severely injured person’s long-term care and needs. We know a fair settlement amount for the type and severity of injuries received and will fight aggressively for you.  

Pedestrian accident causes 

Although many pedestrian accidents occur at intersections, people are hit by motor vehicles in many locations –including walking on a sidewalk. Major causes of pedestrian accidents include: 

  • Disobeying traffic signs or signals  
  • Distracted driving 
  • Driving while impaired 
  • Drowsy driving  
  • Failure to yield the right of way 
  • Faulty roads 
  • Reckless driving 
  • Speeding 
  • Vehicle defects or deficient repairs 

Even if the victim is partly responsible for his or her accident, perhaps because they were looking at a cellphone at the time or a similar distraction, a pedestrian accident lawyer may help them receive some compensation.  

Pedestrian accident liability 

Liability for the accident is often not solely that of the driver. For example, if a vehicle’s tire blows out or the brakes fail, causing the car to veer out of control and hit someone, the manufacturer of the parts or a repair shop may bear responsibility. Depending on whether the road in question is under a local, county, state, or federal jurisdiction, the relevant government agencies may also prove liable. Governments have the duty to maintain roads in safe conditions and to ensure traffic signals are in good working order.  

personal injury attorney will investigate the case thoroughly to determine which entities to hold accountable. That involves collecting evidence, interviewing any eyewitnesses, obtaining cellphone records, and reviewing police reports.  

Pedestrian accident compensation 

Compensation for a pedestrian accident may include: 

  • Medical expenses, present, and future 
  • Lost wages 
  • Loss of future earnings 
  • Pain and suffering  

Unfortunately, many pedestrians die each year in accidents. Under these circumstances, family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit.
