The San Diego area is a very pedestrian-friendly area. This doesn’t mean that all motorists watch for pedestrians in the way they should. In fact, some drivers become so distracted that they simply don’t see people who are walking, even if they are walking in designated crosswalks. This is a very serious safety hazard to these pedestrians.
We know that you did everything you could to avoid getting hit by the car. In many cases, these accidents happen so fast that you can’t take any evasive action. We understand that this was a traumatic experience for you.
When a car slams into a pedestrian, the injuries the pedestrian faces can be devastating. Think about how much an SUV might hurt a person who is walking.
The top priority in these cases is for the injured pedestrian to get help for his or her medical issues. Once an evaluation is done and the treatment plan is implemented, you can start to think about how you are going to try to seek compensation.
When you seek compensation, you are making a clear statement to the driver that his or her actions weren’t acceptable. You are letting others know that they need to watch out for pedestrians who are walking along the streets of San Diego.
We can help you evaluate the possibilities for your case. This includes determining the damages that you suffered and figuring out the damages that you might incur in the future. We can then decide the possible options to get you the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
