Bringing Justice To Injured Pedestrians
Pedestrians are at a disadvantage on the roadways of San Diego and San Francisco. Many drivers are willing to risk someone else’s safety just to arrive at their own destination as soon as possible. This ends in a serious accident all too frequently.
You have rights if you experienced an accident as a pedestrian. We at Rencher Law Group, P.C., can help you understand your rights, hold the perpetrator accountable for their negligence and obtain the compensation you need to cover your damages. Our lawyers also work with the family members of pedestrians who passed away due to negligent drivers.
The Many Dangers For Pedestrians
Walking from one destination to another should not be dangerous, but, as too many people have learned, it often is. There are many dangers on California’s streets that lead to pedestrian accidents, such as:
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Improper left-hand turns
- Failure to see pedestrians
- Failure to yield or stop
- Disobeying traffic signals
Pedestrians are almost always at a disadvantage in car crashes: they do not have a steel cage surrounding them to keep them safe. The injuries sustained are often catastrophically life-changing and bring piles of bills.
Act Quickly – There Is A Statute Of Limitations
It is normal to feel disoriented in the days and weeks following an accident. However, you should contact an attorney as quickly as you can so you can meet the deadline for a civil lawsuit. In California, you have up to two years after the date of the accident to file a personal injury suit. If you and your lawyer miss this deadline, you will lose your right to collect compensation.
