San Francisco Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Representing Injured Pedestrians Across California - (888) 831-8448

When pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and motor vehicles are in close proximity, the risk of a pedestrian accident is greatly increased. It is very important for San Francisco motorists to maintain an appropriate level of awareness of pedestrians in their vicinity in order to avoid a pedestrian accident.

When these injuries occur, the operator of the vehicle is usually held responsible for the accident and could be responsible for any costs associated with the victim's recovery, and all damages beyond the economic

Pedestrian accident victims should always seek the advice of a skilled lawyer as quickly as possible after an accident in order to determine their legal options to seek compensation for their suffering and medical expenses.

Types of Pedestrian Injuries

There are many types of injuries that a pedestrian could suffer during an accident, especially with a car, SUV or commercial truck. Even at slow speeds, a motor vehicle can cause multiple broken bones, internal bleeding, head and brain injuries, paralysis and death, among other catastrophic injuries.

Pedestrian accidents who do not seek legal counsel in these matters may be facing insurmountable medical bills for surgeries, medication or physical therapy during recovery. In some cases, the victims are unable to continue working as a result of their injuries and thus have even greater difficulty meeting their financial responsibilities.

Seeking Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Injuries

If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, which was caused by the negligent action, or inaction, of another person, then you have a legal right to seek financial compensation for those injuries. This compensation should at least cover costs associated with diagnosis, treatment and recovery, and will also address the loss of income from work, and predicted future economic and non-economic damages.

As one of the leading law firms in America, the legal team at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP understands what it takes to achieve substantial compensation for victims of personal injury. Our firm has collected well over $1 Billion for victims of medical malpractice and personal injury in San Francisco throughout the years, and we work hard to see that you get the compensation you deserve.
