Riverside County Attorneys for Injured Pedestrians Who Were Hit by a Car

Car accidents involving pedestrians are often devastating. Pedestrians can suffer life-changing injuries or be killed when a careless motorist makes a mistake. At the Maineri Law Firm, we believe that negligent motorists who injure pedestrians should be held accountable for their actions. That is why we work diligently to get pedestrians who have been injured in car accidents the compensation they need.

Experienced Legal Professionals Helping Those Hit by Cars

The roads of California do not belong only to motor vehicles. Pedestrians have the same right to use public roads as motorists or cyclists do. Unfortunately, many drivers are not as watchful as they should be when it comes to pedestrians. Motorists may speed, make erratic lane changes, or otherwise fail to follow traffic laws. Drivers can easily become distracted by their cell phones, GPS, radios, or other in-vehicle technology. Even something as simple as a conversation with a passenger can be enough of a distraction for a motorist to hit a pedestrian.

Drunk drivers or those under the influence of drugs pose a significant threat to pedestrians. A driver under the influence may not realize that he or she has drifted from the road into a pedestrian walkway or sidewalk. When a pedestrian steps into an intersection, an impaired or preoccupied driver may not be able to react fast enough to avoid a collision.

Working with an insurance company after an injury-causing accident can be extremely difficult. Insurance companies are often quick to offer a settlement, but rarely does their proposed settlement address all of the damages that an injured pedestrian suffered. The injured person may require emergency room treatment, surgery, ongoing physical therapy, and more. Furthermore, the injured person may not be able to work for some time after the collision. They may become temporarily or even permanently disabled.

Recover Financial Compensation Even If You Were Partially Responsible

Speak with Attorney Paul E. Maineri for help if you were injured or a loved one was killed in a pedestrian car accident. He and the team of professionals at the Maineri Law Firm can help you recover compensation even if you were partially at fault for the accident. Insurance companies may imply that you do not deserve compensation if you were not paying attention to where you were walking or were otherwise partially responsible for your injury. The state of California disagrees. California's pure comparative fault rule dictates that a party injured by another's negligence may still recover compensation for their injury even if they contributed to the injury-causing incident. If you are found to be partially at fault for your injury, the amount you can receive in compensatory damages is reduced by your percentage of fault.
