Accidents Necessitating a Personal Injury Attorney
Many of us drive our cars every day. As drivers, we share the road with other motorists, bicyclists, truckers, and pedestrians. You can be involved in a collision with any type of road user when they, or you, or a third party fail to take the necessary care to prevent an accident.
When you are a pedestrian, you are in the most vulnerable category of road users. You are not protected by a metal chassis, a helmet, or even the luxury of being lifted off the ground like a bicyclist. If you are injured while walking, you can face steep financial damages.
After a car accident or pedestrian accident, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to start developing your personal injury claim. You have the right to seek compensation for your damages.

Car Accident and Pedestrian Accident Causes
In most cases, collisions are caused by negligence. Examples of negligence include:
- Drunk driving;
- Distracted driving or walking;
- Aggressive driving;
- Failure to obey the posted traffic signs, whether one is a motorist or a pedestrian.
Types of Personal Injuries
Motorists and pedestrians alike can be seriously
injured in collisions. Injuries they can suffer
If you are involved in an accident, seek medical
attention for your injury as soon as possible. Worry
about seeking compensation later – your health and
safety should come first.
Seeking Monetary Compensation for Your Injuries
All of the injuries listed above can be quite expensive for the victim. Injury expenses are more than just medical bills – they can include the wages a victim cannot earn because he or she is temporarily or permanently unable to work, the costs of hiring outside help to manage his or her household chores and other personal needs, and the overall costs of a reduced quality of life because of the injury. When a victim faces these expenses because of an injury he or she did not cause, that victim can seek compensation for these expenses through a personal injury claim.
In California, the statutes of limitations for personal injury claims is generally two years from the date of the accident. Working with an experienced lawyer can ensure that your claim is filed within this time frame and that you have sufficient evidence to support the claim. This evidence needs to show that the other party involved in the accident somehow behaved in a negligent manner and that because of this negligence, the accident that resulted in your injury occurred. You also have to provide evidence to show the monetary value of your damages.

Personal injury lawsuits are filed to recover damages due to injuries caused - through negligence, intention or recklessness – by a third party. Car and pedestrian accidents are, in fact, some of the most commonly represented personal injury cases. Whether sustained through car and pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, bus accidents, bicycle accidents – or through other forms of auto accident – affected persons should seek out an experienced personal injury attorney to represent their case. Many of these cases are on the rise, particularly bicycle accidents, even though bicycle accidents are highly preventable.
There are innumerable causes of car accidents and pedestrian accidents. Our firm has represented clients who, through no fault of their own, experienced incidents caused by diverse sources as human error, unsafe road conditions, a failure by some to observe speed limits, poor weather, drunk driving (DUIs), by persons who communicate via text or call while driving, to name just a few. Disciplining children is, for example, another prominent cause of auto accidents throughout California. Our personal injury lawyers have represented many clients throughout Orange County, helping recover damages caused through these means. The rates at which car and pedestrian accidents speak for themselves, including bicycle related accidents.

Soft tissue injuries
Serious and potentially life threatening
Broken or fractured bones
