California roadways are notoriously dangerous for pedestrians. In 2016 alone, more than 14,000 pedestrians sustained injuries and 867 were killed on Californian streets. After a serious accident, it can be difficult to make ends meet, even if your healthcare insurance picks up some of the medical expenses. You shouldn’t have to pay for the mistakes made by a negligent driver. Talk to the personal injury lawyers at Ellis Injury Law about your options for legal recourse.  

We’ve been working with injured individuals in Bell Gardens and throughout Southern California for more than 25 years. We’ll review your case for free, negotiate with the insurance carrier on your behalf, or file a lawsuit in order to secure maximum compensation for you. 

What if the accident was partially my fault? 

Even if you think you may be partially to blame for the accident, it’s a good idea to consult a pedestrian accident lawyer at Ellis Injury Law. It may still be possible to secure compensation for your injuries. California uses a fault-based system, or tort system, to determine responsibility for losses due to accidents. This means that the party at fault for the accident is responsible for the losses. If both parties are partially at fault, then both parties share responsibility for the financial losses.  

In addition, under California’s pure comparative negligence system, you can recover compensation to the degree that the other party is at fault. In other words, if you were 25% responsible for the accident, then you may be able to recover 75% of the damages. If you were 80% responsible, then you may be able to recover 20% of the damages. 

When you work with a Bell Gardens pedestrian accident attorney at Ellis Injury Law, we will vigorously defend your legal rights and aggressively pursue maximum compensation on your behalf. 

Common injuries caused by pedestrian accidents  

Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable. When a car strikes a pedestrian, any part of the body can be seriously injured. Here at Ellis Injury Law, a personal injury attorney can help you pursue justice after suffering any type of serious injury, including the following: 

  • Lacerations and contusions 
  • Bone fractures 
  • Pelvic injuries (the hood design common in many vehicles is a factor in causing pelvic injuries) 
  • Internal injuries (including organ damage and internal bleeding) 

Our legal team also works with accident victims who have suffered head trauma and spinal cord injuries. These serious injuries can cause permanent disabilities, including paralysis.
