PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS IN LONG BEACH
Cities across the country are more populated than ever. This means heavy vehicle traffic and an increase in the number of people traveling by foot throughout neighborhoods and cities. Even people walking on sidewalks and in crosswalks are at risk of being hurt in accidents caused by negligent drivers.
Sadly, every year pedestrians suffer serious injuries as a result of being struck or run over by vehicles. This can lead to unexpected and costly medical treatment and a lengthy recovery process resulting in lost wages. Most victims cannot afford the hospital bills and time off of work – this is where our attorneys can help.
We will investigate your case and work towards a settlement or verdict that covers your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering damages, and other damages caused by the accident.

ABOUT PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
Each one of our clients receives the personal attention necessary to cultivate a trusting relationship and a successful case. Your case is unique, therefore, it must be handled with specific strategies and solutions in mind. Still, there are some common themes among pedestrian accidents that may apply to your case. Most automobile versus pedestrian accidents occur at an intersection in a crosswalk. If a pedestrian proves that he or she was walking through a marked crosswalk with the appropriate lighted signal (“walk signal”), then any injuries and damages are the fault of the driver.
Also, if you were jaywalking or perhaps partially at fault, we may be able to prove the driver was still negligent. Much depends on all of the facts of your case which is why it’s so important to call us as soon as possible so we can begin obtaining the evidence critical to the resolution of your case. Because California is a comparative negligence State (which essentially means negligence can be attributed in percentages between the defendant(s) and you), even if you think you are not entitled to compensation for your damages, our attorneys are skilled at finding ways to attribute a significant percentage of liability to the driver of the vehicle.
WE CAN HELP
After being seriously injured in a pedestrian accident, you may be facing exorbitant medical expenses. Depending on your injuries, you may need medical treatment, diagnostic tests (such as MRIs and CT scans), medication, hospitalization, and/or physical therapy. Your medical treatment plan can last for months or years after the accident. One of our priorities is making sure you get the best medical care possible.
If you don’t have medical insurance or cannot afford the care you need, we can help. We can arrange medical care for you on a lien basis, which means you pay nothing upfront and the medical providers will recover from the proceeds of your case. Indeed, the driver at fault is responsible for paying medical expenses stemming from the accident, and these expenses are taken into account in your ultimate settlement or verdict.
Therefore, it’s best to get the top medical care now when you need it most, rather than to wait many months or years when a case is resolved to render the delayed medical care of little to no value. The most important factor is your health. Let our law firm get you to the medical professionals who can treat your injuries and get you back to a healthy state.
