Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Pedestrians are at a higher risk of injury than most when it comes to being involved in a car accident. There are several laws in place in California to protect pedestrians, and if it is determined that the driver was negligent, there will likely be causation for a personal injury claim. Of course, it is always up to the victim to file a lawsuit for compensation.
Many victims pursue legal action because of the tremendous costs that arise after an injury. Hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering often add up to a lot. These costs can be quite life-changing for people to suddenly incur, and so file for compensation often becomes an attractive option.
We at Brady Law Group understand the incredible cost of a full recovery. Victims are often left in debt after an accident, and it is not fair to that person, especially when they were not the cause of the accident.
