Santa Barbara County 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 vehicle, whether or not alcohol or drugs also played a role, whether or not there was any mechanical issue with car, and whether or not the driver involved was distracted or reckless when the collision occurred.

Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this collision, the pedestrian victim may possess the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
