We have seen a lot of accidents in our years of practice, and often the cause of a pedestrian accident is negligence by the driver. While some pedestrians could be to blame for their accidents, most drivers neglect to observe pedestrians on the road.
Some common causes of pedestrian accidents include, but are not limited to:
• Driving while under the influence
• Running red lights
• Crossing into a crosswalk where pedestrians are present
• Distracted driving
• Illegally parked cars that make it difficult for other drivers to see pedestrians
Whatever the cause of the accident, you need a skilled Chico pedestrian accident lawyer to represent your claim.
Pedestrian accidents can lead to serious, if not fatal injuries. Some injuries can include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury, amputations, paralysis, etc. The medical bills, pain and suffering and loss of wages associated with these injuries can devastate a family. But, with our Chico pedestrian accident attorneys by your side, you can have your financial worries settled.
