Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Los Angeles
The root of most pedestrian accidents is negligence – mostly from automobile drivers.
Common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- People who drunk drive or who drive under the influence of drugs
- People who drive while distracted – like when they are texting or talking on the phone whilst driving
- Drivers running red lights and hitting pedestrians in the crosswalk
- Cars parked illegally – making it difficult to see pedestrians
- General reckless driving
Common Injuries of Pedestrians Involved in Accidents
Unfortunately, a pedestrian is exposed and unprotected when they are hit by a motor vehicle. The pedestrian can suffer significant injuries such as traumatic brain injury, internal bleeding, nerve damage or broken bones. The severity of the injuries will depend on how fast the automobile was going, the angle of impact, what part of the body was struck and where the incident occurred.
Why You Need a Lawyer to Represent Your Interests
Your pedestrian accident attorney’s help is critical to help gather evidence and to help establish who is liable in an accident where a pedestrian was involved. Your lawyer will help gather statements from victims, information from other drivers, photographs of the scene or even CCTV camera footage.

An injured pedestrian has 2 years to file a claim against a possible liable party. If the case is not filed within the timeframe, it will be dismissed. Sometimes a dangerous or defective road led to an accident. A government entity can be held responsible. However, if this is the case, the claim must be filed within 6 months of the incident happening.
