Pedestrian Accidents

Our Southern California pedestrian accident attorneys have legal experience in representing pedestrians who are injured and are seeking medical care and financial payment. We handle cases where people are injured while jogging, running, skate boarding, riding their bike or just walking across a crosswalk and were hit by a car, truck or bus.

Pedestrians Have the Right of Way!

Pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way. It sometimes seems that many drivers either do not know this LAW or choose to ignore it. If you were injured or lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident caused by a careless or negligent driver, contact Curd, Galindo & Smith, LLP, today to discuss your options for making those responsible pay in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Although you may feel fine today, having been impacted by a moving vehicle can cause problems in the future. This is especially true for soft tissue injuries and hairline fractures.

Each year, over 85,000 pedestrians are injured and approximately 6,000 pedestrians are killed in motor vehicle accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorists who fail to yield to pedestrians cause the majority of these accidents.

Motorists MUST Yield The Right-Of-Way To Pedestrians — But Often DO NOT!

Under the law, motor vehicles must yield the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks (marked OR unmarked crosswalks) and on sidewalks. The failure of motor vehicle drivers to exercise proper care around pedestrians can result in serious/catastrophic injuries, and even death. If you or a loved one has been injured by a motor vehicle in a pedestrian accident, Southern California pedestrian accident lawyers at Curd, Galindo & Smith, LLP, know how to help you obtain the just compensation to which you are entitled!

** Federal Highway Administration — "A crosswalk at an intersection is defined as the extension of the sidewalk or the shoulder across the intersection, regardless of whether it is marked or not."
