Building a Pedestrian Accident Case
In the event of a pedestrian-vehicle collision, the person on foot is far more likely to suffer severe, catastrophic injuries. Because pedestrians are no match for large, heavy, fast-moving vehicles, motorists are required by law to always yield the right-of-way to individuals on foot. However, in the event of a collision, many drivers try to argue that the pedestrian “appeared out of nowhere” or was illegally crossing the street at the time of the accident. Building a successful pedestrian accident case can be very difficult without the help of an experienced attorney.
At Aghabegian & Associates, PC, we employ a methodical approach to building your injury case:
- Often, our team will conduct an independent investigation at the scene of the accident, collecting evidence and working to determine how the accident occurred.
- In many cases, our attorneys work with experts and specialists in order to uncover the facts involved in the accident, as well as who is liable for your injuries.
- Our team can work with you to help you get the critical medical treatment you need and determine the expected lifetime cost of such treatment.
- We remain your dedicated advocate during negotiations with the liable insurance company, as well as in the courtroom whenever necessary.
All too often, pedestrians suffer debilitating injuries—such as spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries—when they are hit by cars, trucks, vans, and other motor vehicles. The physical, emotional, and financial cost of treating these types of injuries is immense; our Glendale pedestrian accident lawyers can help you fight to secure the fair compensation you need to cover all of your related losses.
Speak to Our Team Today
Our attorneys have extensive experience in this particular area of law. We have handled numerous pedestrian accident cases, including a case in which a 25-year-old woman suffered a devastating brain injury after being hit by a delivery truck in a marked crosswalk. The driver of the truck insisted that the woman ran into the path of his vehicle, but our investigations revealed that he had a history of failing to yield the right-of-way as required by law. Ultimately, our firm was able to not only encourage the woman to seek out proper medical treatment for her injury, allowing her to make a full recovery, but we were also able to secure a substantial settlement on her behalf.
