Woodland Hills Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Get Compensation and Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable
Pedestrians are at the mercy of automobile drivers while crossing streets and roads. Even if you look both ways before crossing the street, you can still be struck by a distracted or reckless driver.
Drivers are responsible for keeping an eye out for pedestrians on the road, especially if they are crossing at a crosswalk. If you were injured by an automobile as a pedestrian, you may be entitled to compensation.

What to Do After Your Pedestrian Accident
Immediately following your accident, you should check your condition to make sure you are okay. Try to document the scene of the accident as thoroughly as possible. Take note of the relevant road signs, crosswalks, traffic signals, and everything you can observe about the driver and their car. This may prove to be an invaluable resource, especially if there is an argument over who was responsible for the accident.
Calling the police and filing a report could go a long way in helping your case later on. While you wait for the authorities to arrive, take pictures of the scene and try to get witnesses to give a statement.
After you document the event extensively, seek the help of a medical professional, even if you feel fine. Some injuries take a while to develop, especially brain-related injuries.
Common injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents include:
- Brain injuries
- Fractured bones
- Pelvic injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
If you are injured, make sure to document the injury as well, and constantly update it periodically in case your condition changes.
