Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer

California Law dictates that pedestrians must be given the right of way. Drivers must comply by decreasing vehicle speed in marked or unmarked walking zones, and failure to do so will result in potentially serious consequences. For this particular case, officials will consider distracted/negligent driving and DUI as contributing factors to the accident.

By law, the pedestrian has the right to issue a wrongful injury lawsuit against the truck driver and the company that owns the truck. Compensations will cover different issues ranging from medical bills to painful injuries.
