Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Southern California
Have You Been Injured? MCIS Lawyers Is on Your Side.
Are you a pedestrian who has suffered injuries due to the negligence of a driver? Pedestrian accidents can be devastating and life-changing. In one case, the victim was crossing a busy street when he was hit and killed by a motorist who had just crested a hill. A wrongful death lawsuit was filed and the case settled. At MCIS Lawyers, we have experience in providing the highest-quality representation to victims of pedestrian accidents, and we will fight on your behalf.
Determining Liability After an Accident
According to California law, pedestrians have the right-of-way in both marked and unmarked crosswalks. Drivers are always required to yield to pedestrians, and failing to do so may result in automatic negligence. Many individuals that are hit by vehicles are walking in a legal and safe manner, and the driver is usually the one at-fault.
Many times, drivers hit pedestrians because:
- They are distracted by their phones, radios, apps, or texts
- They were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- They were speeding and unable to slow down in time for a pedestrian
- They were tired, or not driving safely for the road conditions, weather, or time of day
Our Southern California lawyers will work with you to ensure that the driver is held responsible for the pain and suffering you have endured and that their insurance pays out the compensation that you need in order to fully recover from your injuries.
