How We Can Help
Southern California has large sprawling metropolitan areas with heavy traffic, whereby motorists and pedestrians often share congested spaces. It is inevitable in these situations that accidents will occur. If you or a loved one have been injured while legally walking or standing on the streets of Southern California, you need the expertise of Workman Law & Litigation on your side.
The types of injuries that can result from a pedestrian being struck by a motor vehicle are typically severe. Our team of experienced professionals knows what it takes to investigate a collision and build a case against a careless driver.
Some of the most common causes of pedestrian injury include:
- Dangerous Intersections. Sometimes, the design of these intersections means that the chances of an accident are higher than usual.
- Driver negligence. There are cases where drivers are just not paying attention to the road, leading to devastating consequences. In today’s tech-driven world, drivers frequently use their cell phones while driving by talking, texting, reading emails, or looking up directions.
- Confused drivers. Those unfamiliar with the area can be a danger to pedestrians if they don’t know where they’re going or are too busy reading a GPS.
Most of the time, and luckily for those injured, comprehensive case investigation often proves that drivers were acting improperly while driving. At Workman Law & Litigation, we perform a thorough investigation of every accident to ensure you get the deserved compensation for the injuries sustained.
Our careful investigations allow us to help pedestrian accident victims get back on their feet by guiding them to take advantage of all necessary treatment to recover from their injuries. Typically, victims are usually unable to work for an extended period of time, and may even have a reduced earning capacity. We work hard to ensure that the at-fault drivers, and their insurance companies, are responsible for paying the victims for these lost wages and other expenses.
In the most unfortunate cases when a pedestrian accident victim does not survive, we work with the families to bring a wrongful death case to claim support and compensation for the injuries sustained. While no amount of money can replace the loss of life, this compensation can help offset the financial burden often associated with the passing of a loved one.
