Pedestrian Accidents

Situations Involving Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents with injury can occur in a parking lot, at street crossings, in the amusement park areas of Anaheim, or while riding a skateboard along the paths in Irvine or Newport Beach. The warmer weather combined with California’s outdoor lifestyle and heavy traffic results in a much higher number of accidents involving pedestrians.

Pedestrians are at a substantial disadvantage when they are involved in an accident with a car, truck or motorcycle. These accidents usually result in serious injuries requiring extensive medical attention and long-term physical therapy and recovery.

Helping You Navigate Uninsured Or Underinsured Motorist Cases

When a pedestrian suffers a serious or fatal injury resulting from an accident involving a motor vehicle, complex matters of proof and liability can complicate the case against the negligent driver. An experienced and accomplished attorney knows how to present the evidence before a jury or in settlement negotiations to win a case and maximize recovery.

Many drivers in Orange County maintain minimal amounts of insurance coverage. Some have no insurance at all. In the case of a hit-and-run driver, the injured victim must pursue other sources of recovery unless and until the hit-and-run driver can be located. These cases require legal expertise and experience to ensure that you receive the maximum possible recovery in your case.  Your own Uninsured/Under-Insured Motorist or UM/UIM coverage under your automobile insurance policy will cover your financial expenses resulting from a hit and run driver.  However, many people who have become disillusioned with their own insurance carrier have turned to our office for help.  You may be surprised how you are treated by your own insurance company when you are forced to file a UM/UIM claim after a pedestrian accident or hit and run.
