Edward  Babbitt Attorneys Can Help You Prove Driver Negligence In Pedestrian Accidents
Back To Blogs List

Most pedestrian accidents involve a motor vehicle. Statistically speaking, about 70 percent of all pedestrian accidents in California are caused by negligent drivers.

When this happens, the only way to recover from these accidents is to speak with a knowledgeable attorney and to file a personal injury claim.

Neglecting what happened and moving on may leave you in a difficult financial situation. You would have to pay out of your own pocket for:

  • Medical bills
  • Home care

On top of that, you will lose wages due to the inability to return to work.

Your only solution is to speak with an attorney. Here is how an attorney can help you prove negligence and help you file your personal injury claim after a pedestrian accident.


Getting Behind The Accident

When you contact an attorney following a pedestrian accident, they will start by investigating what happened. This involves going through the police report, medical report, eyewitness testimonies and recreating the event. If there is the slightest detail that can help prove that the driver was acting recklessly at the time of the accident, our attorneys will find it. Once they do, all that is left for you is to file a claim and wait until you receive your compensation. If eligible, you will receive compensation for your:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Out-of-pocket expenses

Contact our San Diego Pedestrian Accident Attorneys today if you do not have an attorney on speed dial, and they will offer you a free consultation followed by a free case review.

Common Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents

Understanding the common causes of pedestrian accidents can help you avoid them in the future. Usually, they are:

  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Disobeying traffic signals and signs
  • Ignoring and disregarding the weather conditions
  • Reckless driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Road rage
  • Driving while distracted

Under California Law, every accident caused under any of the above-mentioned circumstances leaves the injured pedestrian eligible to file a claim against a negligent driver. Based on the injuries sustained, the injured pedestrian can receive a sizeable compensation.

Negotiating With The Insurance Company


Once you have filed a claim against a negligent driver, you will be approached by the insurance adjusters. Their job is to make you a deal that you cannot refuse, one that will look like a great deal to you and one that will at the same time protect the company’s interests. This deal is usually not good enough, and it will not help compensate you for all your damages.

Instead, you should let San Diego Personal Injury Lawyers do the talking for you. With their experience and years in the business, attorneys will negotiate with the insurance company and ensure that you are either offered a fair and notable deal, or the case will go to court for the judge to decide. Either way, you cannot lose.

Do not hesitate to get in touch with attorneys. They are your best shot at obtaining the compensation that you rightfully deserve.
