San Fernando Valley Pedestrian Crash Lawyer

Most pedestrian accidents happen when vehicles fail to yield to or see pedestrians at crosswalks and walkways. As you can imagine, a pedestrian versus vehicle accident could significantly injure and/or kill a pedestrian. Commonly negligent drivers of vehicles found at fault for hitting a pedestrian are reportedly impaired, unlicensed, or even inexperienced at driving. Pedestrians could receive injuries ranging from mild physical abrasions to life-threatening and critical injuries. Any pedestrian abiding by pedestrian/traffic safety laws should feel safe to walk without fear of injury. Drivers do not have the right to force pedestrians off the road, negligently injure, or intentionally cause pedestrians physical harm. Contact The Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg at 310-997-0904 to speak with a skilled pedestrian accident attorney. Drivers found at fault can be held civilly liable and forced to pay compensation for emotional trauma, pain and suffering, medical bills, and court costs.
