In busy cities, such as Los Angles, being a pedestrian puts one at risk of serious injury. The personal injury attorneys at Wilshire Law Firm have experience representing pedestrians injured in an accident with a car or other motor vehicle while crossing an intersection or street on foot. Negligent drivers put pedestrians at risk for injury by practicing unsafe driving habits that include:
- Lack of attention to pedestrians
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Careless driving
- Speeding or other reckless behavior
Not surprisingly, a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle will usually sustain serious injuries. Life threatening injuries to the spine, head, and internal organs are likely for pedestrian accident victims. We recommend that victims lacking suitable health insurance contact our attorneys as soon as possible to protect their interests in the immediate aftermath of the accident. Our firm works to ensure any and all required treatments or procedures are available for you, so your recovery will be as rapid and complete as possible. Expenses related to immediate and long-term care are costly and extensive, Wilshire Law Firm attorneys demand full compensation of any and all expenses of an accident, including:
- Medical bills
- Loss wages
- Emotional and physical pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment in preferred activities
Attaining full compensation for all expenses and suffering incurred from a pedestrian accident motivates our attorneys in their zeal to negotiate a fair and just settlement for our clients. Representation of your best interests to the negligent party and their insurers is completely managed by our capable and trained attorneys in order to ease any stress or anxiety on you during your recovery period. All representation of our clients is based on contingent fee basis that extends all required legal services at no cost to you. Our compensation is not earned until we secure an acceptable settlement in your favor.
If suitable medical care is not available to you under a personal health insurance policy, the firm is able to offer all necessary medical care and treatment through a network of medical professionals. Certified doctors and trained hospital staff will be available to you with no limit to the cost or extent of the required treatment. All medical services are provided without upfront payments; providers accept a lien against the proceeds of your future settlement instead. Counselors are available to travel to your residence or a treatment facility to answer any questions you may have about the legal process or the status of settlement negotiations.
In the unfortunate event that a suitable settlement cannot be negotiated with the liable party, our personal injury attorneys are fully qualified to pursue all legal actions necessary to secure a fair and appropriate settlement. Private investigative services will be engaged as necessary to establish the facts around your claim and to support a finding of liability for the accident against the other parties. Reconstruction of the accident site may be necessary. Our investigative team can reenact a collision in order to provide visual and statistical evidence supporting your claim.
Eye witness testimonies can also be obtained to support your timeline of events leading up to the accident, while testimony from medical experts can attest to the extent of your injuries. Background checks of driving and police records are able to show a history of negligent driving to support a finding of negligence against the other driver.
The attorneys of Wilshire Law Firm offer aggressive representation of our clients and their interests, while maintaining a standard of honest and ethical practice. Our attorneys are committed to our client’s best interests and remain focused on your best interests until a settlement is achieved.
