San Diego Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

As San Diegans, we all use our busy streets and roadways throughout the course of our daily lives. We drive our cars and ride our bicycles or motorcyclists. Sometimes we are simply pedestrians, walking the streets and enjoying the sunny San Diego weather.

Although it is everyone’s responsibility to behave legally and safely, those driving vehicles, which pose an inherent danger due to their size and weight, have a particular obligation to be mindful of pedestrians.

Unfortunately, accidents to happen, and collisions between moving vehicles and pedestrians are all too common in San Diego. When a negligent driver hits an innocent pedestrian, the resulting injuries can be severe and sometimes even fatal.

If you’ve fallen victim to a pedestrian injury accident, call us. We will provide you with a free case evaluation to help determine whether you have a claim.

Common causes of pedestrian accidents

Unfortunately, as lawyers we have seen a lot of these types of accidents. More times than not the root cause is negligence:

+ Failing to yield to traffic or stop signs

+ Lack of awareness of surroundings

+ Driving under the influence

+ Running a red light, then hitting pedestrians in the crosswalk

+ Right turns through crosswalks without looking for pedestrians

+ Distracted driving, such as texting, talking on phone or checking social media sites etc

What to do if you are a pedestrian hit by a car:

First, if you are able – be sure to gather information from the driver such driver’s license number, name, address, phone, license plate number along with make and model of the car.

Second, note the location of the accident, day, time and weather conditions. Take pictures of the scene, gather information from witnesses, and note if there are any surveillance cameras.

Finally, if you are injured, seek medical treatment right away then call our experienced Pedestrian Injury lawyers for a Free Case Evaluation. We will provide you with immediate feedback on your case, and once retained will begin working to secure compensation for your injuries.

Common types of pedestrian injuries

Because of the difference in size and weight of a motor vehicle and a person,  pedestrians who are hit often suffer serious or permanent injuries when struck by vehicles.

Injuries may include:

+ Head trauma or brain injury

+ Spinal cord injury

+ Broken bones

+ Internal injuries

In some cases, a pedestrian accident results in a fatality, at which point it is critical to contact us to determine if you may have a claim on behalf of your loved one. One of our experienced Wrongful Death attorneys will help guide you towards the best options for your situation.

Why hire a San Diego pedestrian injury lawyer?

The short answer, is that although some pedestrian injury accident claims are simple to handle, others are more complex. Trying to get complex cases resolved without the help of a specialized injury attorney can prove difficult.

Studies have consistently shown that personal injury claims represented by experienced personal injury attorneys like Phillips and Pelly, receive much higher compensation than those who choose to represent themselves. Our injury lawyers will explore all avenues of your claim to ensure the maximum compensation you are owed under the law, for your injuries.

    You can go with the catchy jingles that you see on TV as I did, and become just another client. Or you can go with a firm that treats you like family, and sets the bar high by fighting for the maximum payment from your injuries. Very impressed and glad I made the switch! Thanks for everything I truly appreciate you.

    I worked with Ashley LaFontaine and she was absolutely wonderful in getting me the care I needed. When things with the doctors got hung up she helped get things moving. She was super communicative and kept me in the loop through every step of the process. Set expectations from beginning to end very well and exceed my expectations!

    I met Oliver Pelly by happenstance and after I grilled him a couple of times, I decided to hire his firm. After being my initial POC, I began working with Blake Woodhall. Both were standup guys, and Blake kept me in-the-loop the entire time. He was patient when explaining the process and going over details and understanding of my situation and concerns. Everything concluded better than I could have expected, and Blake acted as an excellent buffer to keep everything at bay. I would highly recommend Blake, Oliver and their firm for any auto accident cases.

    Going through my accident was a very difficult and emotional experience. The process of choosing the right law firm can be overwhelming. Choosing Phillips and Pelly was the best decision I could have made. They are extremely knowledgeable and I trusted Oliver’s expertise throughout the entire process. He was very responsive. Anytime I would have a question, including nights and weekends, Oliver would get back to me right away. I would recommend Phillips and Pelly for anyone going through a similar situation. They really are the best.

    I have enjoyed my experience with this law firm. Alecia Gordon represented me with my case and throughout this entire ordeal has been extremely supportive and understanding of my own lack of experience and knowledge of legal matters. She is not only kind and considerate but very intelligent and professional. The paralegal team also deserve kudos as they were always there to assist and assure me of progress and necessary document completions. All in all, I would highly recommend this firm for personal injury claims.

    Matt was very helpful in settling a case for my son that was a passenger in an automobile that crashed into a home. My son suffered cracked ribs, a concussion amongst other injuries. Matt was helpful explaining everything to us as this was a 1st dealing with anything like this for our family. It took time and patience as the other party was reluctant to settle. In the end my son had his ambulance, medical bills and a small amount of recovered monies all paid out. Great man, lawyer and law firm .Highly reccomended
