Pedestrian Accidents in California
Every day, motor vehicle accidents occur in California that leave hundreds of victims with devastating injuries. Spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even compound fractures can impact every aspect of the victim’s life. The unfortunate truth is that the majority of accidents that we see here on our roadways are a result of negligent drivers.
It is all too common for people to suffer debilitating injuries in accidents due to drivers who are intoxicated, speeding, distracted, or otherwise negligent. After being harmed in an accident, victims often struggle to move forward. Dealing with the physical and financial consequences that motor vehicle accidents bring can be exhausting.
In many instances, victims are so desperate to move forward that they would just accept any offer presented to them by the insurance company. Unfortunately, doing this can prevent you from recovering fair compensation later on. Instead of rushing to accept an insurance offer from the at-fault driver’s insurance adjuster, it is in your best interest to explore the legal options that are available.
After being hurt in a pedestrian accident, you have the ability to file a personal injury claim against the driver who is responsible. This type of legal claim can provide you with financial relief for various damages that you face, including medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
