Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads in the state of California. Many pedestrians are seriously injured or even killed in accidents every year. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. In 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 893 pedestrians were killed in California pedestrian accidents. If you have been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident that is not your fault, you should speak with an attorney that you can rely on.
The aftermath of a pedestrian accident can affect your life in a variety of ways. You may be left with questions that you cannot answer without the help of an attorney. For instance, what types of evidence do you need to prove that another party is to blame for your accident? What deadlines will you be required to meet when it comes to moving forward with a claim? Will your case be settled or will it make it all the way to trial? What should you say when you speak with an attorney for the first time? These are questions that you can answer when you speak with a Santa Ana personal injury attorney who has your best interests in mind.
