Pedestrians are very vulnerable to being hit by motor vehicles, especially in busy metropolitan cities such as Los Angeles. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were more than 47,000 pedestrians fatalities and more than 66,000 injuries caused by motor vehicles in 2013.
When a pedestrian accident occurs, the victims and their loved ones may be entitled to compensation. If you or a loved one was the victim of a pedestrian related accident, you need to immediately consult with an experienced attorney to protect your legal rights. The legal team at the Nourmand Law Firm can help you obtain the compensation that you deserve.Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents generally happen because motorists are not cautious. There are many causes of pedestrian accidents, including:
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving, by things such as talking on the phone or checking email
- Ignoring stop signs
- Ignoring surroundings, such as school zones
Regardless of what caused your accident, you should consult with an experienced pedestrian accident attorney in Los Angeles to protect your legal rights.Why You Need an Attorney
Many pedestrian accident victims believe they can solve their problems themselves. They might think that if they just contact the other party’s insurance company, they can settle the matter without legal costs. If you are not properly represented, it is highly likely that the insurance company will pay you significantly less than your case is actually worth.
Unfortunately, insurance companies only have one goal, and that is to settle their claims for as little as possible. In order to achieve this goal they will take advantage of an unrepresented accident victim by offering as little financial compensation as possible. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, it is in your best interest to obtain legal counsel. An attorney who specifically handles these types of cases will know how to handle insurance adjusters to obtain the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.Pedestrian Accident Personal Injury Lawyers Who Focus on You
