Whether you are out for an early morning jog or walking to work, your life can change in an instant if you are hit by a motor vehicle. Pedestrian accidents are some of the most serious accidents because pedestrians have no protection when they are struck by a moving vehicle. The injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident are likely to be severe and are often fatal. Even if the motorist was only traveling at five miles per hour, a pedestrian can suffer serious and debilitating injuries to the head, back, neck, chest, arms, legs, and other parts of the body. These types of injuries not only require extensive and costly medical care, but they often cause injured pedestrians to miss work for an extended period of time. In some cases, injuries suffered in pedestrian accidents prevent the victim from ever working again.
Fortunately, California law provides protections to pedestrians who have been injured in a motor vehicle collision. This means that if you have been hurt in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for your losses. Collecting the money you deserve and need to move forward with your life can be a challenging process. So it is always best to work with an experienced Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer.
