Bellflower 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.

California’s busy roadways create major hazards for pedestrians, especially when drivers are under the influence or are driving while distracted. Because pedestrians are completely unprotected while walking on the sidewalk or crossing a street, they are susceptible to catastrophic injuries and death. If you were seriously injured or you lost a loved one to a pedestrian accident, you can schedule a free case review with the Bellflower pedestrian accident lawyers at Ellis Injury Law. 

Our personal injury lawyers understand that you need to focus on your health during this time. We’ll handle the legal issues for you so that you can save your energy for healing. 

Proving the negligence of the driver 

In a pedestrian accident case, both the pedestrian and the driver have a duty of care to exercise reasonable caution for the purpose of avoiding accidents. When our pedestrian accident lawyer meets with you, we will consider how the driver may have breached this duty of care. When a driver breaches the duty of care owed, that driver could be proven negligent and therefore legally liable. A driver may be negligent for doing any of the following: 

  • Speeding 
  • Making an unsafe turn 
  • Failing to yield at a crosswalk 
  • Failing to obey traffic signals and signs 
  • Failing to adjust the speed to the weather/driving conditions 
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol 

In addition, pedestrian accidents often occur because of distracted driving. Cellphone records may prove that the driver was using their cellphone just prior to the accident, which indicates that the driver failed to notice the pedestrian in time to brake. 

Types of compensation available for pedestrian accident victims 

Your personal injury attorney at Ellis Injury Law will do everything possible to secure maximum compensation on your behalf. How much compensation you could receive depends on a number of factors, including the extent and severity of your injuries and the insurance coverage.  

In general, it’s advisable to rely on your medical insurance to take care of as much of your medical expenses as possible. Your out-of-pocket expenses should be taken care of by the insurance carrier or the defendant’s assets if a lawsuit is filed. You may also be entitled to receive compensation for lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, and mental anguish, depending on the specifics of your situation. 

Here at Ellis Injury Law, our personal injury lawyers strongly recommend that you keep careful track of all of your losses stemming from the pedestrian accident. Keep all receipts for your co-pays and keep track of your lost wages as they accrue. This helps to substantiate your accident injury claim.
