California Pedestrian Accident Compensation

Can I claim compensation for a pedestrian accident in California?

Yes, compensation for a pedestrian accident is available in California. If a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle because of driver negligence, they may claim damages for their financial losses, pain and suffering, and more. Traffic laws protect pedestrians and give them a legal right to compensation when they’re hurt because of the actions of someone else.

What compensation can I receive for a pedestrian accident?

You may receive the following compensation for a pedestrian accident:

  • Medical bills – emergency and long-term healthcare bills, costs of evaluations and procedures, prescription costs, mobility devices
  • Lost wages – short term and long term career impact
  • Cost of travel to medical appointments
  • Nursing care, home care if needed
  • Mental health care, PTSD, anxiety, flashbacks, and other mental injuries
  • Pain associated with the accident
  • Emotional anguish
  • Disfigurement and disability, limitations in lifestyle
  • Property damage – for personal items that may have been damaged

How do I claim compensation for a pedestrian accident?

You may receive compensation for a pedestrian accident by going through insurance. The responsible party may satisfy damages through their insurance policy. In addition, you may bring a legal claim for fair compensation. The victim has the right to have legal representation.

Can I sue if I’m hit in a crosswalk in California?

You can sue if you’re hit in a crosswalk in California. California Vehicle Code 21950 requires vehicles to yield to persons on foot in a crosswalk. If you were following traffic signals and didn’t dart in front of traffic, you can sue if you’re hit in a crosswalk in California.

Can I sue someone for running over my foot?

Yes, you can sue someone for running over your foot. They must be at fault for the accident by failing to yield the right of way or by failing to use sufficient care to know that you were near the vehicle.

Pedestrian Accident Laws

Who is a pedestrian under California law?

California law 467 defines a pedestrian as a person on foot or a device that uses human power. The definition also includes persons using electronic personal assistive mobility devices, self-propelled wheelchairs, motorized tricycles, quadricycles, and other disability mobility assistive devices.

Does the pedestrian always have the right of way in California?

Pedestrians usually have the right of way, but they may not dart in front of traffic. They must follow the rules of the road. Drivers and pedestrians alike should be aware of their surroundings and prepared to take evasive action, but pedestrians generally have the right of way in marked and unmarked intersections.

What is pedestrian negligence?

Pedestrians have a duty of care just like motor vehicle drivers do. Pedestrian negligence is any way that a pedestrian doesn’t use care that a reasonable person would use under the same circumstances. A determination of pedestrian negligence is specific to the situation based on all the relevant information. Even if a pedestrian is at fault to some degree, comparative negligence rules may still allow them to claim compensation.

What is a pedestrian accident lawsuit?

A pedestrian accident lawsuit is a formal claim for financial compensation when you’re hurt by a motor vehicle driver. You demonstrate who is at fault for the accident based on standards of negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct. You show how the accident resulted in your injuries and what compensation you deserve. When you prove your case, the defendant must pay compensation. You have the right to representation from a lawyer for pedestrian accidents.

What is my case worth as a pedestrian hit by a car?

The value of a case is the sum of financial losses, the severity of pain and suffering, the time it takes to heal, the clarity of legal fault, and whether the victim has any shared fault. There’s no formula to calculate the exact value of a case – it depends on several factors. Of course, no matter what your case is worth, you must pursue and build a claim to receive the compensation that you deserve.

There are things that you can do to maximize your compensation. Contact our law firm for a personalized review of the value of your case.

Marchelle Y

Attorney Daneshrad is very professional and courteous. I called him after being involved in a rear ender. I didn’t know anything about anything when it came to the process for making a claim after a car accident. Everyone at his office including Jennifer did everything in their power to make sure I was taken care of.

They made doctors appointments and regularly called to check-in on me. We ended up having to file a lawsuit. Three months after we did, attorney Daneshrad called me with great news! We had a settlement offer. It was for a lot more than I could have imagined. It has been three weeks since the settlement and he still calls me to check in on my injuries. You can tell he really cares about. He isn’t just about the numbers. Thank you attorney daneshrad! And happy holidays!
