Pedestrian Accident Injuries
The injuries sustained from a pedestrian accident depend on a number of factors, including the type of vehicle, the speed of the vehicle and the angle of impact. Cars tend to hit pedestrians in the legs, often throwing them onto the hood of the vehicle. SUVs, however, tend to hit pedestrians higher in the body, increasing the chances of a fatal injury.
In California, the danger of pedestrian accidents is especially high. Pedestrians are at risk of getting hit in busy intersections and parking lots, by public transportation vehicles and by messenger bikes. Regardless of the nature of your pedestrian accident, it is important to consult with an experienced California pedestrian accident lawyer.
Don’t Sign Anything
If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, the driver’s insurance company may contact you and try to get you to talk about your accident. Keep in mind that anything you say to the insurer can be used to limit or deny your claim. Consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer before making any statements to an insurance company. Don’t say anything and don’t sign anything.
