Have You Been Involved In an Accident as a Pedestrian?
There were 289 pedestrian-involved auto accidents in the city of Oakland in 2008, according to statistics presented by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) online. Of these, 14 were fatal. If you or someone you know was injured in a pedestrian accident in the Oakland area, do not hesitate to contact a lawyer at our law offices as soon as possible. We have the experience and the resources to properly handle your pedestrian injury claim, helping you to seek the financial compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses or injuries caused by your accident.
A pedestrian accident may be very serious, most likely for the pedestrian rather than for the driver or occupants of the motor vehicle. While the occupants in a motor vehicle have the protection of thousands of pounds of metal, airbags and seatbelts, the pedestrian will have nothing. As such, a pedestrian may be at risk of suffering from severe head trauma, damaged internal organs, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and even amputation. All of this adds up to hospitalization and exorbitant medical bills, along with psychological trauma and financial difficulties. This is where an Oakland injury lawyer at our law firm may be able to help.
