San Fernando Valley Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Caring, Dedicated Counsel for Injured Pedestrians
Pedestrians are at risk of catastrophic injury or death if motorists are careless or break traffic laws. Even in a low-speed accident in a parking lot or driveway, a pedestrian may suffer debilitating injuries that affect him or her for life, requiring emergency treatment and ongoing care, not to mention missed work or even an inability to return to work in the same field or at all.
The Swanson Law Group is dedicated to helping injured pedestrians recover fair compensation and lead more stable lives through our caring, dedicated legal counsel. We have recovered over $85 million in verdicts and settlements during our years in practice, and we handle pedestrian accident claims on a contingent fee basis, meaning you pay no legal fees unless we win.
To find out how we can help you, contact our San Fernando Valley pedestrian accident lawyers at (818) 946-0555. Your consultation is free and confidential.
Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
When our attorneys take on a case, we are careful to analyze the physical evidence and eyewitness accounts. Our pedestrian accident attorneys work with accident reconstruction specialists and expert witnesses to identify cause and assign fault, as well as identify all possible sources of compensation.
Pedestrian accidents may be caused by:
- Distracted driving (texting while driving, talking on the phone, etc.)
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Speeding or driving too fast for road/weather conditions
- Poorly marked crosswalks
- Defective traffic signals
- Defective/missing pedestrian ramps or crosswalks
- Defective or poorly maintained vehicle parts
Regardless of how your accident occurred, if you've been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident, please give us a call and arrange a free, no-obligation case evaluation today.
Pedestrian Accident Statistics
Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are incredible common in the United States. A 2017 report from the U.S. Department of Transportation provided the following information:
- In the United States,5,977 pedestrians were killed in motor vehicle accidents.
- On average, one pedestrian is killed every 88 minutes in a vehicle accident.
- 75% of pedestrian fatalities occurred in the dark.
- The majority of pedestrian accidents did NOT occur in intersections (73%).
This report defined a pedestrian as "any person on foot, walking, running, jogging, hiking, sitting, or lying down" who was involved in an accident with a motor vehicle. Which means that these numbers do not include accidents that involve roller skaters, skateboarders, baby strollers, scooters, wheelchairs, and other types of conveyance devices.
