California Pedestrian Accident Stats
Pedestrian accidents are one of the most common causes of emergency room visits in America and instances are becoming more frequent. In fact, the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) claims that U.S. pedestrian accidents have reached their highest level in 40 years.
These accidents are especially common in California, which was ranked the eighth-most dangerous state for pedestrians by Car Insurance Comparison (CIC). With the high volume of cars in Los Angeles, pedestrians face more danger than in most other U.S. cities.
Whether you’ve suffered minor injuries or been in a catastrophic accident, a Los Angeles pedestrian accident attorney from Lerner and Rowe can help make sure that you get the money you deserve for your injuries. This includes compensation for medical bills, ongoing treatment, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.
Los Angeles Pedestrian Accident Causes
There are many reasons why pedestrian accidents happen. Over the years, the Los Angeles personal injury lawyers at Lerner and Rowe have successfully represented pedestrian accident victims that have suffered injuries due to:
- Distracted driving
- Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Reckless driving
- Poor visibility
- Poorly marked crosswalks
- Work zones
- Sidewalks and walkways full of debris and other obstructions
No matter the nature of your accident, you deserve compensation if it was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party. Insurance companies know how vulnerable accident victims can be, which is why they often pressure them into accepting settlements that are a fraction of what they deserve. Don’t let this happen to you. Contact Lerner and Rowe today for your free consultation.
