All it takes is a driver taking their eyes off the road for a split second to change the live of a pedestrian forever. Even when cars aren’t speeding, even when they’re driving just ten or fifteen miles per hour, colliding with a car, truck, or other vehicle can leave a pedestrian permanently injured. Spinal cord injuries, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, and death are just a few of the possible outcomes.

Are you being accused of causing the accident in the first place?
Pedestrians and drivers alike have a legal duty to act reasonably in traffic. They must both obey all signals and signs. If both the driver and pedestrian made a mistake that led to the accident, then there will be a question of which mistake was a bigger mistake and had a larger role in causing the accident.
The good news is that California law allows for the possibility that the liability of the accident may be split between more than just one party. The key is that your liability wasn’t 50%. If it was less than half, then you may still be eligible for compensation. If you’re being accused of being at fault, then you need to contact Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre right away. We will work tirelessly to prove that your fault was less than 50% and will further work to ensure you get the best possible compensation for your injuries. You deserve justice. We will work hard to get it for you.
