When a pedestrian is involved in an accident with a vehicle or due to an unforeseen danger on a road or walkway, serious complications can ensue, resulting in high medical bills and pain and suffering that can go on for years. If the accident occurred due to the negligence, recklessness, or willful wrongdoing of a car or truck driver, motorcyclist, or landowner who failed to safely maintain the property, then the pedestrian has the right under California law to pursue a lawsuit against all such responsible parties and potentially their employers or insurers to recover monetary damages for all injuries suffered.

Winning Your Pedestrian Accident Claim Is Our Top Priority
Simply demonstrating that you were injured while walking does not guarantee that you will win full recovery for your injuries. In a pedestrian accident claim, your attorney will need to prove that the defendant took an action that was negligent (meaning lacking in the proper amount of care) and you were injured as a result.
Our Ontario pedestrian accident lawyers handle cases involving such defendant negligence as:
- Failing to yield to pedestrians at crosswalks
- Running stop signs and red lights
- Distracted driving (texting, talking on phone, etc.)
- Dangerous walkway conditions (spills, broken steps, etc.)
Proving Fault & Recovering Proper Compensation
In the process of proving the defendant’s fault, our legal team will also work to make the best case as to why you are entitled to full monetary recovery for your injuries. We work with medical providers, technical advisors, and other experts to provide a compelling case for the cost of your medical bills over your lifetime, as well as the lifetime costs associated with decreased earning potential and pain and suffering. A full and proper financial recovery is our goal.
