We understand the most common types of injuries sustained in these types of accidents.
- Broken bones

Who Is Liable for Pedestrian Accidents?
California is a fault-based car accident state. After a pedestrian collision in LA, the injured party should seek financial recovery from the at-fault party. The driver that struck the pedestrian will most likely absorb fault for damages. Your Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer can help you build a case against the driver or another party based on the facts at hand.
- Driver. Texting and driving, failing to yield the right-of-way, speeding, and driving drunk are all common causes of pedestrian collisions.
- City. The City of Los Angeles may be accountable for defective sidewalks, crosswalks or street signals that contribute to a collision.
- Company. If an on-duty driver for UPS, USPS, Uber, Lyft, a pizza delivery place or another establishment struck you, the company could be liable.
Holding a driver or another party responsible may take a full investigation from a law firm. Our attorneys can revisit the scene of your accident, help you gather evidence, obtain copies of police reports and take other steps to build a case against one or more parties in pursuit of fair recovery for your damages. Your case starts with a free consultation at our Los Angeles office.
