Tulare Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Pedestrian collisions in California injure and take the lives of thousands of people every year. Many of them are sent to hospitals with serious or debilitating injuries that can cost them thousands of dollars and force them off of work. These injuries can play a major role in reducing the quality of life for the victim. People who choose to walk or ride their bikes are extremely vulnerable to the impact of large, fast-moving vehicles. Oftentimes, if involved and injured in a pedestrian collision, pedestrians usually suffer traumatic head injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and damages to internal organs. 

Sadly, not everyone is always able to successfully recover from their injuries, and the rest of their life may be affected. In fact, numerous victims are left permanently disabled from their injuries. In the worst cases, pedestrians lose their lives. If you or a family member have suffered a serious injury in a car accident that was the result of another person’s negligence, you could be entitled to significant financial compensation.
