Pedestrian Accident in Pasadena, California

Law Offices of Tim D Wright - Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Pasadena, California

When most people think of auto accidents, they usually don't think of individuals walking on foot. However a Pasadena pedestrian accident lawyer will tell you that common collisions do not only involve two or more cars.

A fair portion of car accidents only involve one driver. Further, these types of accidents can often cause significant damage and horrible injuries. This is especially accurate when the collision involves a pedestrian.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, the Pasadena pedestrian accident attorneys at Tim D. Wright realize that you are going through a difficult time. Medical expenses are accumulating, you're out of work, and you're hurt and in pain. Additionally, you may be receiving calls from an auto insurance provider and you don't know what to do.

The good news is that we are here to help. The attorneys at Tim D. Wright have been taking on pedestrian accident cases for many years with great success. If you have a case, we are prepared and ready to defend you.

What Are Common Causes of Pasadena Pedestrian Accidents?

Drivers have a duty of care while driving their vehicles that includes more than just other cars. Motorists need to also keep a lookout for the more unprotected individuals on the roads, such as motorcyclists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Here are the primary causes:

If a motorist does not pay close enough attention-- or their driving is impaired for any other reason-- they may seriously injure or kill a pedestrian unintentionally.

In order to totally understand how serious pedestrian accidents are and how to avoid them, we also have to know what leads to pedestrian accidents.

Some leading causes of accidents involving pedestrians include:

  • Turning and merging accidents
  • Leaving a parking lot or driveway
  • Failing to yield
  • Speeding
  • DUI
  • Bad weather
  • Delivery truck accidents
  • Loading and unloading bus and rail passengers
  • Distracted driving

What Should I Do If I'm Hurt In a Pasadena Pedestrian Accident?

Understanding what to do after you are struck by a car while walking is important so that you can preserve your rights and legal options in case you are seriously injured or have other damages.

  • Call the authorities and make a report
  • Note witness information at the scene
  • Take pictures and video of the accident scene
  • Collect as much of your own evidence as possible, including names, police reports, and so on
  • Seek medical attention right away
  • Call a pedestrian accident lawyer
  • Do not speak to a car insurance company before you've had a consultation with an attorney

As a growing number of people turn to either public transportation or walking as an alternative to travelling by vehicle, more pedestrians end up on the public streets. This is particularly true in metropolitan areas like Pasadena, where people frequently walk from bus stops, "L" stops, or rail stations to their homes or places of employment.

Too frequently, pedestrians are struck by motorists that are too distracted to see them crossing the street or walking behind a car. And when this happens, it will be the pedestrian, not the motorist, that pays the price.

The pedestrian injury attorneys at Tim D. Wright have comprehensive experience working with those who are hurt in this type of accident. We can pursue a personal injury case on your behalf, or a wrongful death suit on behalf of a loved one that has been killed in a pedestrian accident in Pasadena or any other of the surrounding areas.
