Severe Injury Potential

Pedestrian Accident Injuries Are Often the Most Severe

Drivers of vehicles have a higher duty of care because they are more protected and have the potential to inflict serious injury and damage to pedestrians. Pedestrians don’t have any protection against direct impact from vehicles in their path. Because of the lack of protection, these accidents are often much more severe.

Some of the most common injuries may include:

  • Severe bone breaks and dislocations
  • Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Internal bleeding and punctured organs
  • Severe nerve damage
  • Paralysis

The severity of an injury will depend on many factors out of the pedestrian’s control, including the speed of impact. But, injuries of any kind may result in medical bills, lost wages, and financial strain. To receive the compensation you deserve, consider consulting professional and dedicated Mission Viejo attorneys.

Liability Info

Pedestrian Accident Liability

California offers pedestrians several laws written to protect them. According to the California Vehicle Code, drivers are required to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians using crosswalks or intersections. If a driver fails to yield, is found to be distracted, speeding excessively, or driving under the influence, they will be held liable for your injuries.
At Jolly Berry Law, experienced attorneys can evaluate your case, advocating on your behalf. We protect your rights, helping you receive the results you deserve.
