Pedestrian Injuries in Bakersfield

The injuries that pedestrians receive during car accidents are often serious and result in the need for expensive medical treatments which, when combined with lost wages, can be financially catastrophic. To lessen their liability, the defendant or insurance carrier might try to pressure you into giving them a recorded statement that will later be used to dispute their responsibility and your damages.

They may examine your social media accounts for any information that could be used against you and crucial evidence that would be used to verify your claim, like surveillance tapes, could be erased.

A California pedestrian accident attorney will help you keep a step ahead of both the defendant and the insurance carrier as well as prevent mistakes that could endanger your claim.  

California pedestrian accidents are more likely to leave victims with broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries, all of which require extensive medical treatment. There are many instances where car accidents are caused by the actions of other motorists. These accidents can include people texting or using cellphones while driving, drunk driving, speeding, ignoring traffic control devices, and engaging in unsafe driving behaviors. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of negligent drivers, they should consult with a pedestrian accident attorney in California as soon as possible.
