Vista Personal Injury Attorney Represents Injured Pedestrians
CA accident lawyer gets justice for those hit by cars and other vehicles
When you walk around your neighborhood, you expect to be safe. Crosswalks, stop signs and traffic signals all help to protect you from vehicles in the roadway. Unfortunately, sometimes drivers ignore red lights or don’t stop at crosswalks. In these situations, pedestrians can be hit and may suffer serious injuries. Hansen Law provides aggressive legal representation to injured pedestrians and their families.
Causes of Northern San Diego County accidents involving pedestrians
Pedestrians can be hurt nearly anywhere that people walk. From driveways and parking lots to sidewalks and crosswalks, there is always a possibility of danger. Drivers of cars, motorcycles, buses and trucks often hit pedestrians. Some of the most common reasons for these accidents include.
- Distracted drivers. Drivers cannot pay full attention to the road when they are using a cell phone or any other electronic device. They may also be distracted by passengers, food or even the button on a car radio.
- Fatigued drivers. Drowsy driving is nearly as dangerous as drunk driving and results in drivers who aren’t fully focused on the road or the pedestrians in front of them.
- Intoxicated drivers. The use of alcohol or other intoxicants by drivers frequently leads to serious or deadly accidents.
- Negligence. Drivers often speed, disregard traffic laws or otherwise operate their vehicles recklessly. In these cases, they may be found to be negligent under the law.
I hold all drivers accountable for their dangerous behavior and helps victims of pedestrian accidents get the justice they deserve.
