Helping Injured Pedestrians Recover Compensation
With its well-developed infrastructure, active lifestyle and fair weather, Northern California can be a haven for hikers and pedestrians who want to enjoy its cities and natural beauty. However, these recreational activities can quickly turn dangerous when a negligent motorist or property owner contributes to an accident.
When we represent an injured pedestrian in the Bay Area, we often find ourselves representing someone who was struck by a vehicle while walking to work or school, hiking or jogging for recreation, or on foot while engaged in daily activities in a park, parking lot or driveway. We also advise and assist bereaved surviving family members when pedestrian accidents have been deadly.
Call us today to arrange a free consultation to discuss your specific case. With offices in Hayward and Danville, we serve clients throughout Northern California.
How We Can Build Your Injury Claim
Getting out and about on foot should not be a recipe for disaster. Most walkers, hikers and joggers stick to the paths provided for them: sidewalks, hiking trails and marked crosswalks. When a motorist fails to watch out and injures a pedestrian, we are ready to investigate promptly through the following steps:
- Documenting the accident scene
- Interviewing witnesses such as other children, drivers or pedestrians
- Photographing the injuries and the vehicle that hit our client
- Searching for and identifying all potential sources of compensation, including homeowners insurance
We hold negligent drivers accountable when they injure pedestrians. Schedule a consultation to learn how we can prepare and develop a compelling case for compensation.
The Importance Of Timely Legal Counsel
Please note it is advisable to seek legal counsel immediately, as a lawyer can assist with the task of identifying the driver of the car, truck or bus that struck you. If you let time go by, discovering evidence of liability may become more difficult to do. A motorist may leave the area or surveillance videos may be wiped out. A prompt investigation can be critical.
The Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker, APC, is a source of information, support and advocacy for pedestrians and their loved ones.
