Tens of thousands of pedestrians are injured each year on California’s streets when they are struck by moving vehicles. The severity of their injuries varies according to the speed at which the vehicle was traveling, but more often than not, a pedestrian doesn’t walk away without substantial medical treatment.
The lawyers at Butler Viadro, LLP, will diligently pursue compensation for people who suffer catastrophic injuries or who have lost family members when hit by cars, bikes or motorcycles while walking. To schedule an appointment with our Oakland pedestrian accident lawyers, contact us online.
Hit By A Car In Alameda County?
When a vehicle operator is careless and that carelessness causes him or her to hit a pedestrian, he or she is responsible for any resulting damages. We represent people who have been injured when struck by a negligent car or truck driver, biker or bicyclist who failed to yield the right of way, caused a crosswalk accident or chose to drive recklessly.
Injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents are often severe and may include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Closed head injury
- Spinal cord injury leading to full or partial paralysis
- Neck and back injuries
- Severed limbs, broken or crushed bones and other orthopedic injuries
- “Road rash,” contusions and disfigurement
- Soft tissue injuries such as torn tendons and ligaments
We also represent the families of those killed in pedestrian accidents in wrongful death actions. The team of personal injury lawyers at Butler Viadro, LLP, will diligently work to hold careless drivers and their insurance companies accountable by recovering compensation on our clients’ behalf.
