Los Angeles Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents are common in our state.  According to the California Department of Public Health, there were over 95,000 pedestrian injury accidents between 2007 and 2013.  Over 98 percent of these pedestrian accidents took place in urban areas.

The Los Angeles area is certainly no stranger to pedestrians.  Many people choose to walk from place to place instead of dealing with heavy traffic in the city.   When a pedestrian is involved in an accident, the results are often severe and catastrophic.

Drivers must be alert at all times for pedestrians.  This means avoiding distractions such as texting while driving and following all traffic laws, especially in congested areas.  Taking basic precautions while behind the wheel can help to avoid tragedy.

Pedestrians, meanwhile, are also expected to observe all laws.  A pedestrian should exercise care for their own safety at all times.  This means crossing the road only with a traffic signal, walking in marked areas such as crosswalks and paying close attention to traffic patterns.

Even when all safety precautions are followed, accidents still happen.  If you have been injured in a Los Angeles pedestrian accident you need experienced counsel.  At the Los Angeles Injury Group, our team of attorneys and paralegals have experience handling pedestrian accident cases all across Southern California.
