San Diego Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Were You Hit By a Negligent Driver? We Can Help.
Pedestrian accidents are analogous to
truck accidents in that one party is dramatically larger, heavier and more dangerous than
the other, causing collisions to be devastating for the smaller party.
When a truck hits a car, however, there is at least a modicum of protection
afforded by the structure of the vehicle. With pedestrian accidents, however,
the victim has no such buffer from the assaulting vehicle.
When you are left
seriously injured after an accident, your priority should be healing, not your injury claim.
Police reports, medical records and the accident scene must all be evaluated
by a skilled professional. Without legal representation from a skilled
San Diego car accident attorney, there is a very real possibility that you will be left without adequate
compensation for your injuries.
The Additional Dangers of Hybrid Vehicles
Hybrid vehicles pose an additional danger to pedestrians, as they make
little to no noise when traveling at low speeds. Pedestrians who are habituated
to checking traffic with both auditory and visual means may be caught
unsuspecting by a hybrid.
Children are exceptionally vulnerable to hybrid vehicle accidents, as a child is
more likely to accidentally run into a hybrid vehicle's path without
hearing the oncoming vehicle. Drivers of hybrid cars have an increased
responsibility to the public to ensure that their negligence does not
contribute to pedestrian accidents, and yet these accidents continue to occur.
