Pedestrian Accident

Santa Monica Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

When you or a loved one has suffered injuries as a pedestrian, there are laws that protect you. As a pedestrian you could have been struck by a motor vehicle, suffered injuries walking on a roadway, in a parking lot or on private property and you may have suffered injuries in a sidewalk accident.

It can be devastating for the pedestrian that is involved in an accident and the injuries that are suffered can be serious. This can place financial stress on the injured victim, when they have suffered serious injuries, due to:

  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation, therapy and nursing care
  • Loss of wages
  • A lengthy recovery time
  • Living costs, without the normal income
  • Future medical costs

These financial issues, along with pain and suffering can cause the injured pedestrian stress and slow the healing process. Legal representation is a way for the injured pedestrian to have their rights to receive compensation and it is crucial to seek legal help as soon as possible. Evidence can deteriorate, which can mean recovering a lower settlement amount. The Santa Monica pedestrian accident attorneys at SWLAW LLP have the years of experience in successfully representing injured victims and the injured pedestrian.
