Protecting The Rights Of Pedestrians After An Accident

In California, drivers, bicyclists and other vehicles have a duty to look out for pedestrians and yield to them when necessary. However, thousands of pedestrians suffer catastrophic injuries or die in pedestrian accidents in Los Angeles every year. If you or a loved one suffered in a pedestrian accident, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to help fight for you.

Our team at the Law Offices of Eric Hershler has over 35 years of experience helping clients in the Los Angeles area get the help they need after an accident. We know how overwhelming the legal process can be, especially when you already face a long and painful recovery from your injuries. We will always work with you personally to ensure that you receive the tailored legal representation you need to get through this difficult time.

You Deserve Compensation For Your Suffering

Pedestrians, without the body of a vehicle around them, are particularly vulnerable to catastrophic injuries after an accident. Whether a car hit you when you were using a crosswalk or a drunk driver swerved onto a sidewalk, pedestrian accident victims can suffer from life-changing injuries.

Common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers
  • Poor lighting
  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Drunk driving

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may obtain compensation for economic and noneconomic damages following your accident. Economic damages include compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, lost future income and other financial losses incurred due to the accident. Noneconomic damages compensate you for your mental anguish, pain and suffering, and disfigurement.
