Pedestrian Accidents

Los Angeles pedestrian injuries and fatalities rank among the highest in our nation. Los Angeles County data shows that although pedestrians tend to be involved in approximately 15% of traffic accidents, they tend to account for over half of all traffic accident deaths.

In 2015, Mayor Eric Garcetti signed an executive order creating the Vision Zero initiative, which set the ambitious goal of eliminating traffic deaths on the city streets by 2025. It called for reductions of 20% by 2017 and 50% by 2020. The city's slow progress since the inception of the Vision Zero initiative, however, suggests that reducing fatalities by half in the next three years will be difficult if not close to impossible.

Our team of attorneys and staff understanding the difficulties pedestrians face when involved in an accident. How do I get my hospital bills paid? What can I do about missed time from work? Who is responsible for my injuries? These are just a few of the common questions and concerns pedestrian face right after the accident.

Most Common Pedestrian Injuries

What is a “hit and run” accident?

Under California law, when parties are involved in a motor vehicle accident, they are required to remain at the scene of the accident and wait for the police or another agency to arrive. However, not all drivers follow the law, and some leave the scene of the accident without stopping, making it a “hit-and-run” accident.

It is important to note that if a driver leaves the scene of an accident, he can be charged with “hit-and-run” even if the accident wasn’t his fault. Furthermore, a “hit-and-run” driver can be charged with a felony if someone was injured or killed, or with a misdemeanor if no such injuries occurred.

If you or a loved one is injured as a result of a “hit-and-run” accident its important to remember the following:

  • Make sure to take pictures of your injuries and the scene, or if you are not able to, ask someone else to take the pictures for you.
  • Call 911 and wait until the police arrive.
  • Talk to any witnesses and make sure to get their names, and phone numbers.
  • Seek medical help for your injuries immediately after the accident.
  • Do not talk to any insurance company before talking to an attorney.
  • Do not sign any documents sent to you without talking to an attorney.
  • Contact a reputable pedestrian accident attorney.
