Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries in Los Angeles County

Our pedestrian accident attorneys in Los Angeles represent pedestrians injured by careless or reckless drivers. When a vehicle hits a person crossing the road, walking across a parking lot, or walking along the street, the driver is often at fault. All drivers have a responsibility to prevent accidents when possible and must follow all applicable traffic rules – many of which are in place to protect pedestrians. According to the Los Angeles Almanac, this busy city has 22,000 miles of surface streets and more than 3 million commuters during the morning rush hour alone. Pedestrians in Los Angeles have to cross through traffic thousands of times every hour. Some areas are more dangerous than others, including one of the five most dangerous intersections in California, located at Lindley Avenue and Roscoe Boulevard. Gridlock, school traffic, and congested urban areas all increase the risk of accidents.

Common Injuries Suffered in LA Pedestrian Accidents

The team at KJT Law Group represents clients with a wide variety of pedestrian accident injuries. We know how to build a case based on catastrophic injuries and long-term care needs as well as moderate injuries with little to no lasting effects. Some of the injuries we see in pedestrian accidents include:
  • Head injuries, skull fractures, concussions, and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Back and neck injuries, with or without spinal cord injuries
  • Amputations
  • Fractures and crush injuries
  • Joint and soft tissue injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Road rash and other burns
We carefully document our client’s injuries, treatment costs, ongoing and future care needs, and other damages. Then, using the evidence we gather to show fault and liability, we demand fair compensation from the driver’s insurer or sue the driver in a County of Los Angeles civil court. KJT Law Group is here for you – no matter how severe or lasting your injuries, justice is possible.

What Causes Pedestrian Accident Injuries in Los Angeles?

Most pedestrian accidents, like other traffic collisions, occur because of negligence. One party acts carelessly or recklessly and causes a crash. When collisions occur between a vehicle and a person on foot, the pedestrian usually suffers the worst injuries. This is why many traffic laws seem to favor pedestrians. If a driver fails to follow traffic rules, nearby pedestrians are likely in danger. This includes when:
  • Making turns when a pedestrian is in a crosswalk
  • A pedestrian crosses the street between intersections, even in a marked crosswalk
  • In parking lots where drivers and pedestrians share close quarters
  • On surface streets, especially in neighborhoods when drivers may pass without enough room
While carelessness is one of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents, other factors may include:
  • Drunk driving
  • Drugged driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving

What Damages Are Available for Financial Recovery?

Our personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles pursue damages for our clients based on their unique expenses and losses. Every case is different. However, we generally seek some of the same types of damages in each case, such as:
  • Medical bills and related expenses
  • Future or ongoing care costs
  • Income losses for missed work
  • Reduced ability to work and earn in the future
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
The attorneys at KJT Law Group also handle wrongful death lawsuits in Los Angeles.

Understanding What to Do After a Los Angeles Pedestrian Crash Injury

personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles can help you navigate the claims process and recover compensation or sue the at-fault driver and represent you at trial. This process begins as soon as your pedestrian accident occurs. The initial minutes and hours should focus on your injuries and well-being – get medical care for any pain, injuries, or swelling as soon as possible. Because pedestrian accident injuries are often severe, many victims leave the scene in an ambulance. They generally go to one of the trauma centers in the area, such as:
  • Cedars Sinai Medical Center
  • Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
  • LAC & USC Medical Center
  • LAC Harbor UCLA Medical Center
  • Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center
From there, they receive diagnostic testing, evaluation, stabilization, and treatment. Some victims spend days or weeks in the hospital. Some move on to rehabilitation facilities for additional care. The bills begin to pile up almost immediately.
