Los Angeles Personal Injury 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.

Authorities will thoroughly look into the speed of the ambulance, whether or not alcohol or drugs also played a role, whether or not there was any mechanical issue with the vehicle, and whether or not the operator of the ambulance was distracted or reckless when the accident occurred.
