Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Rancho Cucamonga
Injured While Crossing the Street?
With something as mundane as crossing the street, we rarely think about the dangers and risks of this action. But the reality is, thousands of pedestrians are injured or killed in traffic accidents annually, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. While we can do everything possible to cross safely and be vigilant, it is impossible to predict the actions of other drivers. If you have been injured by a car while crossing the street or walking on the sidewalk, you deserve compensation for your injuries.
Pedestrians often suffer from injuries such as:
- Brain/head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones

Identifying Fault in Pedestrian Accidents
One of the challenges in a pedestrian accident case is identifying the party at fault. In some cases, it may be the driver who was completely at fault, the pedestrian, or a combination of both. An example of both parties being at fault includes a driver not paying attention to the road while the pedestrian is jaywalking across the street.
If a judge or jury finds that both the driver of the vehicle and the pedestrian contributed to the accident, then the pedestrian may recover less compensation under California's comparative negligence law.
An attorney from our firm can investigate your claim and help you determine liability and identify viable sources of compensation from insurance coverages.
