LOS ANGELES PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT LAWYERS

Over 4,700 people are killed in pedestrian accidents involving automobiles each year in the United States, according to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention. The rate of pedestrian accident fatalities is about two people every hour. In addition, thousands of pedestrians are injured annually after being struck by automobiles. Oftentimes, the injuries sustained by pedestrians are serious.

The pedestrian accident fatality and injury rate in Los Angeles tracks what is occurring across the country more generally. If you have been injured in an accident with an automobile while you were walking, you best protect your rights and interests by retaining the professional services of an experienced Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer.

Compensation in a Los Angeles Pedestrian Accident Personal Injury Case

The facts surrounding an accident, and subsequent injuries, dictate the nature and extend of compensation your attorney can seek in a California personal injury case. With that understood, common types of injuries, damages, and losses for which compensation can be sought in a Los Angeles pedestrian accident case include:

  • medical bills
  • pain and suggering
  • psychological injury
  • permanent disability
  • permanent disfigurement
  • lost income

A dedicated, experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer will fight to ensure that you obtain not only compensation for your existing losses, but for future losses you reasonably can be expected to incur as well. Examples of future losses include medical bills as well as pain and suffering.

Odds are that you very well may need ongoing medical care and treatment into the future, including physical therapy. This represents a type of future loss that needs to be included in any settlement of judgment.

In addition, you may not be able to return to work for an extended period of time. Lost income, which you reasonably can be expected to lose in the future, represents another type of compensation to which you can be entitled in a pedestrian accident case.

Your personal injury attorney can also strive to obtain punitive damages. Punitive damages are possible in a pedestrian accident case when the conduct of the party that caused the accident is deemed to be particularly reckless. For example, if a motorist struck you in a crosswalk and then sped from the scene of the accident to avoid consequences, that conduct in and of itself may be deemed sufficient to warrant an additional award of punitive damages in your case.

Compensation in a Los Angeles Pedestrian Accident Wrongful Death Case

If you are in the truly unfortunate position of having lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may in a position to pursue a wrongful death case. Family members that can pursue a California wrongful death lawsuit include:

  • spouse
  • domestic partner
  • children

If there is no spouse, domestic partner, or children, any family member who potentially could inherent from the deceased person can bring a wrongful death lawsuit.

The nature and extent of compensation available in a California wrongful death case depends on the facts and circumstances surrounding an accident as well as your relationship to your deceased family member. Common types of losses that are compensable in a California wrongful death case include:

  • loss of companionship
  • loss of consortium
  • psychological injury
  • last medical expenses
  • funeral and burial costs
  • loss of income or support

 

In the aftermath of a pedestrian accident, you likely will find yourself facing a mammoth insurance company intent on limiting your claim. The stark reality is that an insurance company has one goal and that is to make money for its stockholders. An insurance company increases its profits, increases the money in the pockets of its shareholders, by limiting the amount of money paid out in claims settlements. In other words, an insurance company will employ tactics to seriously limit the amount of money it pays on your claim.

A skilled Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer understands the strategies to employ to take on an insurance company. A personal injury lawyer will take a firm stance against an insurance company, will fight to ensure that you obtain the compensation you need following a pedestrian accident.

California Statute of Limitations

In California, as is the case in all states in the country, there exists a law called the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations establishes a specific timeline for you to file a lawsuit in a personal injury case, including a pedestrian accident lawsuit.

According to California law, you must file a pedestrian accident lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident. If you miss the deadline, you are precluded from ever pursuing a lawsuit to recovery compensation for the injuries you sustained in a pedestrian accident. You will be precluded from seeking compensation in a lawsuit even if your injuries are very serious.

A California wrongful death lawsuit must also be brought within two years of the date of the accident. A family member is precluded from bringing a wrongful death lawsuit if it is not filed within that time period.

Los Angeles Pedestrian Accident Attorney Fees

The last thing you need to worry about after being injured in a Los Angeles pedestrian accident is drumming up money to pay for an attorney to represent your legal interests. The typical Los Angeles personal injury lawyer utilizes a contingency fee arrangement in a pedestrian accident case.

A contingency fee arrangement is an agreement in which you pay no attorney fees up front in your case. Rather, you are obligated to pay legal fees only when your personal injury attorney obtains a settlement or judgment on your behalf. The legal fee paid in your case is a reasonable percentage of any settlement or judgment your attorney wins for your.
