Sacramento Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Take on Negligent Drivers
Accomplished advocates assist victims throughout California
When vehicles hit pedestrians, the damage can be catastrophic. Distractions such as cell phones make it easier for a negligent driver to miss seeing someone until it’s too late. Whether or not pedestrians were in a designated crosswalk when a collision occurred, they might be able to collect compensation if the driver did not exercise due care. At Mastagni Holstedt, APC, we are experienced California personal injury litigators who represent individuals who have been struck by cars, trucks and other motor vehicles. From our Sacramento home office and locations throughout the state, we work tirelessly to secure reimbursement for injuries through insurance claims, settlement discussions and litigation.
Skillful attorneys pursue relief for people who’ve been hurt while walking
To help victims of pedestrian accidents collect reimbursement for medical costs, lost income, rehabilitation expenses and other damages associated with their injury, our firm offers strong advocacy during insurance claims and personal injury litigation. We handle a full range of matters where people get hurt while walking, including actions stemming from:
- Pedestrians hit by cars and trucks — At crosswalks and street intersections, pedestrians have the right of way. When they’re somewhere else in the road, liability hinges on the specific circumstances and the relative negligence of all involved. Even though someone might be jaywalking, a motorist who fails to take proper care might have to pay damages.
- Comparative negligence — California’s comparative fault law allows defendants to avoid some liability if they can prove that the plaintiff was partially at fault for his or her injury. When a careless driver tries to allege that the pedestrian was distracted or was acting in an unsafe manner, our firm vigorously counters unwarranted claims.
- Falls on unsafe surfaces — Our accomplished litigators also handle incidents where someone is hurt in a fall on a broken sidewalk or some other hazardous surface. We can review the circumstances of the incident to determine if a premises liability claim is possible.
Getting hit by a car while walking might lead to broken bones, traumatic brain injury or other serious and expensive medical problems. Whatever type of legal assistance you need, we offer a free initial consultation so that you can start the legal process immediately.
