Struck Down as a Pedestrian? Get Back on Your Feet with Gaylord & Nantais

Being struck by a car as a pedestrian can be a terrifying and life-altering experience. These accidents often result in severe injuries, leaving victims with overwhelming medical bills and lost wages. If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident caused by a negligent driver, you deserve compensation for your recovery.

Understanding Pedestrian Rights and Safety Tips

Pedestrians have the right-of-way in designated crosswalks and at intersections when the light signals allow. Drivers must yield to pedestrians and exercise reasonable care to avoid accidents. However, pedestrian safety also involves personal responsibility. Here are some tips to stay safe as a pedestrian:
  • Use Crosswalks and Sidewalks: Always use designated crosswalks and sidewalks whenever possible. Make eye contact with drivers before crossing and be aware of turning vehicles.
  • Increase Visibility: Wear bright or reflective clothing, especially at night or in low-light conditions.
  • Avoid Distractions: Put down your phone and avoid wearing headphones that block out traffic noise. Be aware of your surroundings and stay alert for potential hazards.
  • Never Jaywalk: Jaywalking is not only illegal but also dangerous. Always cross streets at designated crosswalks and use pedestrian signals.
  • Obey Traffic Signals: Even if you have the right-of-way, be sure to look both ways before crossing and ensure traffic has come to a complete stop.

Protecting Your Rights After a Pedestrian Accident: Taking Action

The aftermath of a pedestrian accident can be confusing and overwhelming. Here are some crucial steps to take to protect your rights and well-being:
  • Seek Medical Attention: Your health is the priority. Get immediate medical attention to document your injuries and begin treatment.
  • Report the Accident: Report the accident to the police as soon as possible. A police report will create an official record of the incident.
  • Gather Evidence (if possible): If you are able, take pictures of the accident scene, your injuries, and any damage to your clothing or belongings. Note down the names and contact information of any witnesses.
  • Keep Records of Medical Bills and Lost Wages: Maintain copies of all medical bills, pharmacy receipts, proof of lost wages, and any other documentation related to the accident and your recovery.
  • Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer: An attorney at Gaylord & Nantais can advise you on your legal options, handle communication with the driver’s insurance company, and fight for the compensation you deserve.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions: Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Seek immediate medical attention, even if you feel okay initially. Then, contact the police to report the accident. If possible, take pictures of the scene, your injuries, and any damage to your clothing or belongings. Don’t speak to the driver’s insurance company before consulting an attorney.
Common causes include driver negligence, such as speeding, distracted driving (including texting and driving), failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, making right turns on red lights without caution, or driving under the influence.
California adheres to a comparative negligence law. This means any compensation you receive may be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to you. An attorney at Gaylord & Nantais can help fight to minimize any fault attributed to you and maximize your compensation.
The amount of compensation varies depending on the severity of your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and long-term impact on your life. Our lawyers will meticulously assess your case to determine the maximum compensation you deserve.
The length of your case depends on the specific circumstances. Our goal is to resolve your case as quickly and efficiently as possible. However, some cases involving complex factors or disputes with insurance companies may require litigation, which can take longer. We will keep you informed throughout the entire process.

I was lucky enough to have Mr. Nantais as my lawyer. I had spoken to several other workers' compensation lawyers before meeting with Mr. Nantais. Unlike the other lawyers, I found Mr. Nantais very easy to talk with right from the start. He understood what had happened to me with my work situation and showed compassion for my plight. What really impressed me was how well Mr. Nantais represented me when dealing with the opposing counsel. He did an excellent job advocating for my needs, and I was very happy with the case's outcome.
