Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

California has several right of way laws that apply to the pedestrians. These laws include the obligation of the drivers to exercise due care and lessen the speed of their cars while approaching a pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk.

In this case, authorities are investigating several factors such as alcohol or drugs, excessive speed and distracted driving to determine the liability in the collision. An injured victim of a traffic collision may have the right to pursue a claim seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages and pain and suffering.
