Pedestrian Injury Accidents in Los Angeles
Pedestrian injury accidents throughout Los Angeles are significantly more common than you may think. Many car accidents involve pedestrians, while pedestrians also make up for a significant amount of road deaths. While modern vehicles are designed to reduce the impact when colliding with a pedestrian, accidents still happen. A driver is protected while in the vehicle, but a pedestrian will receive the full brunt of the force, often, unfortunately, resulting in life-altering injuries. Construction zones, sidewalk hazards, and negligent drivers and pedestrians are all common causes of pedestrian accidents. The Law Offices of Tim D. Wright is here to represent you if you have been involved with a pedestrian accident throughout Los Angeles. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.
