When a pedestrian is involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, the consequences can be devastating.

Our team of pedestrian accident attorneys in Los Angeles is here to offer unwavering support, expert guidance, and dedicated advocacy to help you seek justice and compensation for your injuries.

What to Do Immediately After a Pedestrian Accident

After a pedestrian accident, your immediate actions are critical. Here’s what you should do:

  • Prioritize Safety: Ensure the safety of all involved parties. If possible, move to a safe location to avoid further harm.

  • Call for Medical Help: If anyone is injured, call 911 immediately. Prompt medical attention is essential, even if injuries seem minor.

  • Notify the Police: Contact law enforcement to report the accident. A police report will be invaluable for your case.

  • Exchange Information: Obtain the driver’s contact and insurance information, as well as contact details from any witnesses.

  • Document the Scene: Take photos of the accident scene, including vehicle positions, road conditions, and any relevant traffic signs or signals.

  • Refrain from Making Statements: Avoid making statements that could be used against you later. This includes admitting fault or accepting blame.

California Statute of Limitations & Pedestrian Accidents

In California, there are specific time limits for filing a personal injury claim related to pedestrian accidents. Generally, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. However, it’s advisable to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure all deadlines are met and critical evidence is preserved.

Common Pedestrian Injuries from a Car Accident

Pedestrian accidents can result in severe injuries, including:

  • Broken Bones
  • Head Injuries and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Internal Injuries
  • Cuts, Bruises, and Abrasions
  • Emotional Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

What if the Pedestrian Was Partly At Fault for the Accident?

California follows a comparative negligence system, which means that even if a pedestrian is partially at fault for the accident, they can still recover damages. The compensation they receive will be reduced in proportion to their degree of fault. Seeking legal advice is crucial in these cases to ensure a fair assessment of liability.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. What types of compensation can I seek in a pedestrian accident case?

You may be eligible for compensation that includes medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related costs. The exact amount depends on the specifics of your case.

2. What if the driver left the scene after the pedestrian accident?

If the driver fled the scene of the accident, it’s considered a hit-and-run. In such cases, it’s crucial to report the incident to the police and gather any available information, such as the vehicle’s description and license plate number. You may still be able to seek compensation through your own insurance or other avenues.

3. What if the driver claims I walked into the road suddenly?

In cases where the driver claims the pedestrian walked into the road suddenly, a thorough investigation is necessary to establish the facts. Eyewitness accounts, physical evidence, and traffic laws will be considered when determining liability.
