Riverside Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

A Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Can Help With Your Medical Bills

West Coast Trial Lawyers recognize that simply walking down the street can now feel like a serious danger. According to a study, there is an average of 395 pedestrian accidents in Riverside each year. In fact, in 2016, there was a record high of 129 pedestrian injuries and deaths

Pedestrians are particularly in danger when it comes to traffic accidents because they are not shielded or covered by any sort of protection, allowing them to be completely vulnerable to being severely impacted.  

This usually leaves the victim with serious injuries or worse, a death sentence. If you or a loved one has been injured in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact West Coast Trial Lawyers for a free consultation and learn about our contingency fee payment plans.

Common Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents  Though a large percentage of pedestrian accidents are due to driver negligence, there are many other situations that can cause a pedestrian accident. Listed below is a list of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents:

Distraction. Both drivers and pedestrians alike can be guilty of this. Whether the distraction comes from being on the phone or another outside influence, distraction is the frequent denominator when it comes to pedestrian accidents.     

Sidewalk Traffic. Sidewalk traffic can manifest itself in a myriad of ways. California street law prohibits the use of electric scooters and bikes on the sidewalk. However, many people usually ignore or violate this rule completely. Combine this with large groups of people, uncontrolled dogs, runners, and narrow sidewalks and the probability of a pedestrian accident drastically increases.

Open Car Doors. The sudden opening of a car door has been the cause of many car accidents. However, it is also the cause of many pedestrian accidents. An unexpected door opening can surprise a pedestrian and severely injure them. 

Large Side Mirrors. Some trucks and buses are built with larger mirrors that extend into the sidewalk. This can cause an accident if a pedestrian moves too closely to the edge of the sidewalk. 

Excited Children. An abundance of roughhousing children can cause an unruly distraction and make pedestrians nervous and uncomfortable. This can, unfortunately, also cause a pedestrian to suffer an unfortunate accident.

  • Internal Injuries. Internal injuries such as internal bleeding can be a result of rib fractures, head trauma or brain bleeding. 
  • Pelvic Injuries. Pelvic fractures can cause serious mobility issues and extreme pain. Some pelvic injuries are easier to fix while others may cause permanent damage.
