Pedestrian Accidents Lawyer Mission Viejo
Mission Viejo Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Proudly Serving All of Orange County
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) pedestrians were unfortunately one of the few groups of road users to experience an increase in fatalities in the United States in 2011, totaling 4,432 deaths. At Banner Attorneys, we represent clients who have suffered personal injuries in the Orange County area and throughout California, or who may be a survivor of a pedestrian killed in a road accident as a result of the reckless or negligent conduct of another person.
Pedestrian accidents typically occur while crossing streets, but can occur while walking on the side of a street, in parking lots, recreational areas, and when cars crash onto sidewalks. Pedestrians can be injured by cars, trucks, motorcycles, or even bicycles.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident, you may have the right to make a legal claim against the driver who caused the accident. To determine your eligibility for claims arising from pedestrian accidents, contact the experienced Orange County personal injury attorneys at Banner Attorneys today at 855-411-2266.
At Banner Associates our focus is on helping people recover full financial damages for injuries and wrongful deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents.
With more than 15 years of personal injury experience, attorney Brian Banner has handled hundreds of car, truck, and pedestrian accident cases in Orange County, California. We handle a variety of pedestrian accident cases, including those caused by a car or truck driver who:
- Failed to yield the right of way to a pedestrian
- Ignored a stop light or traffic signal
- Failed to stop when a school bus arm was extended
- Failed to look right when turning right into a crosswalk
- Was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Was speeding or driving recklessly
Injuries suffered as a result of these types of traffic accidents can be severe and life-altering. You may have injuries to your head or neck, nerve damage or spinal cord paralysis, broken or dislocated a bone or limb, lost the use of a limb, or even lost an entire limb.
Common pedestrian accident injuries include fractures, brain injuries, spinal cord damage, and amputations. These are not only devastating but also extremely expensive to treat, sometimes requiring lifetime medical care. If they are caused by a driver who simply didn’t bother to look or committed a traffic offense, you have the right to claim compensation for the injuries he or she caused. At Banner Attorneys, we can help you get your medical bills and any debts taken care of, make up for any wages you lost because of the accident, and win compensation for your physical and emotional pain and suffering. If the insurance company is unreasonable in their evaluation of your claim, we will negotiate aggressively with the claims adjuster. If they refuse to offer fair compensation for your claim, we will take your case to court and aggressively prosecute it.
A motor vehicle driver who hits a pedestrian is at fault in most cases. Just because a driver did not see you, and even if you were jaywalking, that driver can still be held accountable for hitting you. Our attorneys fully investigate the cases we handle, reconstructing accident scenes, taking pictures, gathering witness statements and valuing your short and long-term injuries in collaboration with medical experts.
It is critical to retain a pedestrian accident attorney in Orange County who is familiar with the local area, the court system, insurance laws and statutes of limitations.
Our attorneys have spent years working with California pedestrian laws. We know how to use these laws to help our injured clients, and how to maneuver through legal red tape to prove that compensation from the insurance companies is justified.
