Riverside Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Drivers should always be aware of their surroundings and the presence of pedestrians, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. Since pedestrians are so much smaller than vehicles, it is not uncommon for walkers and cyclists to be overlooked by drivers. Accidents involving pedestrians can happen in the blink of an eye, but the effects of these accidents typically never go away.
Pedestrian accidents often leave victims with severe, sometimes fatal injuries. At Younglove Law Group, we believe that at-fault parties should always be held accountable for their actions, especially when their negligence led to a serious injury or the loss of a loved one.
Types of Injuries Pedestrians Can Suffer in an Accident
Injuries suffered in pedestrian accidents are almost always worrisome and can be debilitating or deadly to victims. Some of the most common injuries that occur in pedestrian accidents include:
- Broken bones and complex fractures
- Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI) and concussions
- Open head wounds
- Spinal cord injuries
- Other significant neck or back injuries
- Severe lacerations or puncture wounds
- Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
- Loss of limb
- Soft tissue injuries
In California, pedestrians typically have the right of way when crossing the street. Even if there are no crossing signals at an intersection, drivers are expected to yield to pedestrians once they step out into a crosswalk.
