    Where do pedestrian accidents occur?

    Pedestrian accidents can occur in any of the following locations:

    • Crosswalks
    • Shoulder of the road
    • Parking lots
    • Curbside for embarking and disembarking passengers
    • Outdoor dining areas
    • Bus stops
    • School crossings
    • Drop-off/Valet zones
    • Community spaces

    Does the driver always pay for a pedestrian accident?

    California recognizes the risk to pedestrians on the road when measured against a vehicle. The laws in our state have been drafted in such a way to assure all individuals that desire to walk have protections of the law to do so in a safe and reasonable manner.

    Usually, the driver is at fault for a pedestrian accident. They have a duty to watch out for others including people on foot. Common examples of fault for pedestrian accidents are:

    • Failing to stop the vehicle behind the crosswalk
    • Entering an intersection while pedestrians are crossing the street
    • Speeding
    • Weaving onto the shoulder
    • Not noticing or avoiding people getting in or out of a vehicle
    • Backing up in a parking lot without making sure the space is clear
    • Ignoring school crossing signs
    • Exiting a driveway while a person is passing on the sidewalk

    Even if a pedestrian is placed a percentage at fault, California operates as a “comparative fault” state. This means that an award for your damages and harm will be apportioned to the percentage each party is at fault. For example, if a driver is determined to be 55% at fault and a pedestrian 45%, the pedestrian can make recovery for their damages less the percentage attributed to them.

    We can review your case absolutely free and provide you with our opinion on who is at fault and the potential outcome of your case. Call our Tarzana pedestrian accident lawyers now.

    How to Receive Pedestrian Accident Compensation

    How do you get pedestrian accident compensation?

    California requires that all drivers maintain a minimal insurance policy. Unfortunately, not all drivers on the road obey this rule. However, in instances where there is insurance this insurance pays damages to victims when the driver is at fault. A pedestrian may get compensation by making a claim through the driver’s insurance policy. They may also need to file a legal claim to get the compensation that they deserve.

    What are the steps to getting pedestrian accident compensation?

    To get fair pedestrian accident compensation, you must answer many questions:

    • Who is legally at fault? Are there multiple parties at fault?
    • Does that person or party have insurance?
    • What are my damages?
    • Are there types of damages I haven’t considered like economic and non-economic damages?
    • How can I gather evidence to prove each aspect of the claim?
    • Do I want to take my case to trial? Are there legal steps that I need to build my case?

    Getting a fair payment means taking steps to file the claim – but it is so much more than that. You must also investigate and analyze the case. It’s important to know what the case is worth and what legal issues need to be addressed. Our lawyers in Tarzana for pedestrian accidents are full-service litigators who can represent you from start to finish.

    Do I have to go to trial to get a payment for a pedestrian accident?

    Usually not. Most pedestrian accidents resolve with a settlement. It’s important to have the evidence to put you in the best position to settle or amicably resolve your claim for the highest possible amount. However, our lawyers are always ready to file a lawsuit if the insurance carrier fails to place a proper value for your harm.

    At LA Century Law, we’re trial lawyers. We’re ready to represent you at trial if it’s appropriate to maximize your case results. However, we also diligently build your case to give you options about how to resolve it. Ask us whether your case is likely to go to trial, and discuss your goals with us.

    Is my case a pedestrian accident case?

    A person who is on foot or moving under human power is a pedestrian. Electronic personal assistive devices and certain motorized tricycles and quadricycles also fall under the definition of pedestrian in California. (California Vehicle Code § 467)

    Pedestrian accident lawsuit FAQs

    Do I have to file a lawsuit to get pedestrian accident compensation?

    Sometimes a claim can be fairly resolved through insurance. There are still important ways our lawyers assist in making the insurance claim, verifying damages and handling interactions with the insurance company. Other times you need to file a legal claim. Our lawyers can help you understand which way is best for you.

    Who do I name in a pedestrian accident claim?

    A pedestrian accident claim is usually against the driver or their insurance. However, our lawyers always explore other possible responsible parties like an employer, vehicle manufacturer or government body who may have contributed to the accident in a way that may not be obvious.

    Is a pedestrian accident case civil?

    A pedestrian accident case is civil. The defendant does not go to jail if they are found legally responsible. The victim initiates their own case and works with their lawyer to make decisions throughout the case.

    Can you bring a pedestrian lawsuit if the driver gets a traffic ticket or criminal charges?

    Yes, it is possible to bring a pedestrian lawsuit even if the driver faces a traffic ticket or criminal charges. In fact, there are key differences between the two types of claims – the proof required is different, you have control of the civil claim and the focus of your claim is the financial compensation that you deserve.

    In fact, compensation in a civil claim is much more expanded than any proceedings involving a ticket or criminal charges. Our legal team can help you understand the difference between the types of cases and how a civil claim can help you get justice.

    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!
