A pedestrian or bicyclist who is struck and injured by a car, truck, bus, train or other vehicle has the same right to seek financial compensation as a person who is injured in a car crash or a workplace accident.
Because the injuries sustained in pedestrian and bicycle accidents are often serious and require extensive medical treatment, pursuing full compensation from liable parties is critical. You have suffered enough. The financial burden of medical costs, missed paychecks, and long-term rehabilitation should not land on you.
At the law office of DeWitt Algorri & Algorri in Pasadena, we will aggressively pursue the full amount you deserve. We are always prepared to go to trial against the deep-pocketed insurance companies who want to protect their bottom line instead of covering the full costs of those who are injured.
Oftentimes, accidents involving pedestrians or bicyclists are more complex than accidents involving two motor vehicles. We have seen too many pedestrians get talked into believing they somehow are at fault and cannot pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Do not make this mistake. Our experienced California pedestrian accident attorneys can review the facts of your incident during a free consultation to determine if you have an actionable case.
If you are hit while crossing the street outside of a pedestrian crosswalk, you may still be able to make a claim if it can be proven that the driver of the vehicle was acting carelessly in some fashion. A pedestrian who is injured by a driver who then flees the scene and cannot be identified may still collect damages for injuries under the pedestrian’s own uninsured/underinsured motorist provision of their own insurance policy. It is only necessary to prove that the hit-and-run vehicle caused the insured’s injury and that the identity of the driver could not be determined by the insured.
We review every option in your case, including the possibility of naming more than one party in a lawsuit. Our firm has successfully litigated personal injury cases against public entities for creating dangerous conditions, either through faulty design or negligent maintenance.
We offer a free consultation in which we can review the facts of your case and recommend the best steps to take. Call (626) 568-4000 or use our contact form to schedule an appointment. All of our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay attorney fees unless we obtain a recovery for you, either through negotiations or a trial.
