Santa Monica Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Pedestrians who are hit by motor vehicles often suffer catastrophic injuries.
Even a relatively slow-moving vehicle can inflict major injuries to a pedestrian. This can include head injuries, skull fractures, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputation injuries, back injuries, broken bones and/or fractures, and other serious injuries.
Injuries may require a lot of medical attention and lengthy rehabilitation to heal. And over time, you may notice weakness or frailty where none existed prior to the accident. So with an injury like this, it’s critical that you receive the proper medical care, now and in the future. At Schwimer Weinstein, we’ll ensure that all of your financial and medical needs are planned for.
Pedestrians have the same right to recover damages for injuries caused by an accident as any motorist. Motorists have a heightened duty to watch out for pedestrians at intersections and in high-traffic pedestrian areas. Schwimer Weinstein has extensive experience in pedestrian collision cases as well as the knowledge and ability to represent even the most challenging pedestrian accident case.
If you are a victim of a hit and run, it’s critical that you contact the police immediately to file a traffic collision report. You may still be able to recover expenses for your injuries under your automobile insurance uninsured motorist coverage. Our attorneys have extensive experience filing uninsured motorist claims involving pedestrians who are hit by drivers who fail to take responsibility and leave the scene of the accident.
