The importance of swift legal action after a pedestrian accident

Every few weeks a story hits the news about a pedestrian struck by a car. Take this story, for example: A woman suffered life-threatening injuries after getting hit by a vehicle while walking her dog in Del Mar. Although she survived, many are not so lucky.

California has the highest rate of fatal pedestrian accidents in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. More than 600 pedestrians are struck and killed by cars every year. Thousands more survive but suffer lifelong health consequences. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage and back injuries are common.

Drivers are often to blame for these tragedies. They may not be paying attention. They may be texting or talking on a cellphone, for example. When pedestrians also aren’t paying attention, or when they are physically vulnerable, the chance of a collision soars. Sadly, many of the victims in these accidents are elders and children.

If the unthinkable has happened to you or a love one, you don’t need to face the legal aftermath alone. The attorneys at Bender & Gritz can help.
