California’s incredible weather year-round makes walking a preferred form of exercising.

Unfortunately, however, hundreds of pedestrians are killed in accidents involving motor vehicles throughout California each year.

Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries in Moreno Valley
Cars have vast amounts of safety features and technology that have been incorporated to protect their occupants when they are involved in accidents. These features include airbags, crumple zones, collision avoidance technology, and seat belts.
In contrast, pedestrians have no such protection. This puts them in a precarious position when they are interacting with vehicles on California roadways. Even minor pedestrian accidents can cause severe injuries, as the pedestrian is often impacted not only by the moving vehicle but also by the asphalt when they impact the ground.
Significant injuries pedestrians often suffer include:
- Fractured bones
- Lacerations and severe cuts and bruises
- Spinal injuries
- Torn and strained ligaments
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
- Nerve injuries
- Musculoskeletal injuries
Pedestrian accidents unfortunately often result in severe injuries to the pedestrian. Various factors influence how bad the injuries may be, including the speed of the vehicle involved, the portion of the vehicle that was impacted, which part of the pedestrian’s body was impacted, and the location of the collision.
Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents in Moreno Valley
There are various dangerous risks that drivers often take that can pose serious risk to pedestrians. These behaviors can cause not only severe injury to someone in a pedestrian accident but they can also make the driver of a vehicle liable due to negligently operating their car, truck, motorcycle, or delivery vehicle. Some examples of negligent driving that can cause pedestrian accidents in Moreno Valley include:
- Driving at unsafe speeds for traffic conditions
- Ignoring traffic control signals and stop signs
- Pulling into crosswalks without looking for pedestrians
- Distracted driving, like changing a radio station behind the wheel or looking at a cell phone
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
If you were injured due to the negligence of a driver in Moreno Valley, a Younglove Law Group pedestrian accident attorney can help you navigate the difficult time ahead of you by helping you with medical treatment and negotiations with insurance companies. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of claims and can help make sure no stone is left unturned in your pedestrian accident claim.
How Much is Your Moreno Valley Pedestrian Accident Claim Worth?
Every claim is different, and you should be wary of anybody who tries to apply a formula to valuing your claim. At Younglove Law Group, our pedestrian accident lawyers listen to our clients to get the information needed to explain what they have gone through so they can obtain the best possible recoveries.
Often, the bulk of the recovery on a Moreno Valley pedestrian accident claim is for non-economic damages. These damages are meant to compensate the victim for their subjective losses, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional distress
In contrast to non-economic damages, which are more subjective, the other broad type of compensation you can pursue in your pedestrian accident claim is called economic damages. These include:
- Past medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
- Property loss
Again, every claim is different, but these categories of damages are the bulk of what each pedestrian typically recovers in a claim. In order to recover the maximum compensation to which you are entitled, it is vital that you retain top-notch legal representation.

Phil and Chloe really came to the rescue when I was struck by a driver on a rainy day in 2020. I was pretty shaken up by the whole experience and came to them pretty worried, but they were there to help every step of the way from collecting the witness statement to helping with doctors’ visits and dealing with insurance, etc. I’m pleased with the outcome and feel grateful for the support. I would recommend Phil and his team to anyone looking for honest and extremely efficient communication in a time of crisis!
Phil is amazing. Last year I had a pretty traumatic incident at a grocery store, and really had no idea what I was going to do. I had some doctor’s bills, had to take off of work, and got behind on a few things. I got in contact with Phil and the folks that he works with, and they literally walk me step by step through the whole process. It took a little while, but the patience definitely paid off. Phil is knowledgeable and definitely an excellent attorney. I would recommend him anytime.
I was in an accident in June 2019, and from the moment I called them I was immediately taken care of. They sent someone to my home (pre-pandemic), to take my statement and any photos I had. They constantly kept in contact, returned my calls in a timely manner, and it was absolutely amazing how well organized they are – so efficient! My attorney, Phil Younglove is fantastic! I was so pleased with my settlement, very happy. They’re an incredible team, and thanks to Chloe Hunt, who is also amazing.
