When a pedestrian is hit by a speeding or out of control car, or other motor vehicles, serious and often fatal injuries are likely to be inflicted. While a certain percentage of pedestrian accidents happen on or near a designated crosswalk, often a pedestrian, jogger, or child just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The human body is no match for the metal frame and powerful engine of a car, truck, or another motor vehicle, so we stand little chance when involved in a collision with one.

Did you know that Los Angeles County is the worst in the nation in terms of pedestrian fatalities? This is believed to be due to the volume of traffic using the city’s roads, combined with a lack of safe crossing zones. In fact, California as a whole is the most dangerous state for those traveling on foot.

If you, or a loved one, have been injured in a pedestrian accident, an attorney from the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg could be your key to recovering maximum compensation, in respect of your medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
