Pedestrian Accident Injury Attorney
Investigators are likely looking to determine if the pedestrian involved in this accident was clearly following the rules of the road and crossing at the marked crosswalk. California law states that all drivers must yield to pedestrians at marked crosswalks, so the investigation will likely attempt to determine whether or not the driver involved was also obeying the law. They will certainly be seeking to provide answers to all the factors that could have contributed to this accident such as, right-of-way, distracted driving, intoxication, failure to yield, and/or excessive speed.
If the driver is found negligent, there will likely be grounds for a very serious personal injury case. It is our proud mission to hold negligent drivers accountable for the pain and damage they cause, although only the victim of an accident can decide if they wish to file a claim for financial compensation.
