Pedestrian Accidents Happen More Than You Think
We are happy to serve you in Lancaster, our home town and home base. About 168,000 call this desert city in the heart of the Antelope Valley home. Traffic abounds here within congested city streets just like any big city, which unfortunately can lead to pedestrian accidents.
Pedestrians are bound to the rules of the road just as drivers are. Staying within sidewalks and exercising good judgment when crossing streets are all duties of good pedestrians.
However, sometimes accidents are the fault of careless drivers who are distracted or driving irresponsibly. Drivers who cause accidents due to texting while driving, or making phone calls instead of paying attention to the road, are legally responsible for the damages they cause to their victims.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 4,500 pedestrians and 700 bicyclists are killed each year in accidents with motor vehicles, with an estimated 66,000 pedestrians and 48,000 bicyclists injured in accidents each year.
Your Trusted Personal Injury Attorneys
Kuzyk Law, in practice since 1971, has collected more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts, backed by our unforgiving and unrelenting personal injury legal team. We don’t give up the fight for victims of pedestrian accidents, committed to getting you the full value you’re entitled to. Often times, we don’t even have to step foot in a courtroom because we do everything for you.
If you’re waiting for your insurance company to take care of you, you will be waiting a long time. Unfortunately, the typical insurance model is based on those companies handing over as little as possible—just enough to cover your most basic hospital needs.
But what about all the medical bills that could keep coming months down the line related to your injury? What about the wages you’re missing out on because you can’t go to work?
Kuzyk Law has the power to get what you rightfully deserve. You can rely on our solid track record of handling pedestrian accident cases in and around Lancaster for more than four decades. Enlisting the help of a trusted and reputable law firm known for its don’t-back-down attitude is key. You need a Lancaster accident lawyer on your side with this level of experience to win your case rather than take the first auto accident settlement that comes along.
In our experience, we find that pedestrian injuries and deaths can occur due to a number of causes such as:
- Careless or distracted driving while turning
- Alcohol or drug use (DUI)
- Texting or using a smart phone while driving
Pedestrian accidents are one of the most common forms of personal injury case we handle here at Kuzyk Law. More than one party can be found at fault for a pedestrian injury, from the driver to the pedestrian himself to the city charged with keeping roadways safe.
Negligence is determined by careful attention to detail in each case:
- Driver’s duty of care: Was the driver speeding, texting while driving, driving under the influence, or failing to yield to a pedestrian?
- Age of pedestrian: Drivers must keep their speeds low when navigating through residential, school and park areas due to the presence of children.
- Pedestrian Duty of Care: Pedestrians may be at fault with contributory negligence if they ignore walk signals, rush out in front of traffic without warning, or fail to use a crosswalk (though they may still be entitled to compensation)
- Location and conditions: Weather and location such as school zones are factors in determining who is at fault.
Our Lancaster personal injury attorneys are well-versed in navigating the red tape of insurance companies and the California court system, working to get you financial compensation that covers your medical bills, pain and suffering, physical therapy, and property damage.
Look to Kuzyk Law’s personal injury attorneys, who have a proven record of getting our clients max payouts. All too often, people feel they have to settle for insurance companies who compensate clients in the most basic way. Make them pay up—enlist the help of our attorneys for the fight.
