If you’ve been injured as a pedestrian, schedule a consultation with a Los Angeles pedestrian accident attorney at Effres & Associates.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Typically, pedestrian accidents are due to a motorist’s failure to look out for pedestrians, especially at crosswalks and intersections, or failure to yield to pedestrians. Motorists who are speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, or distracted while driving (e.g. texting), are also less able to spot a pedestrian in time to avoid an accident.

Insurance companies will try to find a pedestrian at fault for his or her injuries in an accident. For example, if you were walking in a crosswalk while talking on the phone, the insurance adjuster might claim that your behavior caused your injuries; this makes it imperative that you talk to an experienced lawyer about your claim.

Damages Recoverable in a Pedestrian Accident Claim

Your pedestrian accident claim could include the following damages:

  • Medical costs, including not just short-term or emergency medical treatment, but also future medical treatment.
  • Lost income for all the days that you have lost from work due to your injury.
  • Diminished earning capacity in the future for the lowered ability to earn an income as a result of the injuries.
  • Loss of quality and enjoyment of life.

Here to Help You Through This Difficult Time

Economic damages, such as medical costs are quantifiable. However, for human losses like loss of enjoyment of life and pain and suffering, your lawyer will gather evidence to help quantify the dollar value of this loss. It’s critical to get expert legal advice before you file an accident claim. Failure to account for all of your damages can lead to a lower settlement amount, which means financial distress later when you find yourself faced with mounting medical bills and other financial challenges.
