Pedestrian Accidents

Orange County Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Hit by a Car While Walking? You Have Rights.

In an accident involving a car vs. pedestrian, it is obvious that one party is at an extreme disadvantage. Vehicles are larger and more powerful, and therefore owe an added duty to care to pedestrians walking nearby. Even in low-speed accidents between cars and pedestrians, the person on foot is always more likely to get seriously injured.

Pedestrian accident victims and their families often have the opportunity to recover a significant amount of compensation with the help of the right pedestrian accident attorney in Orange County.

As the victim of a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Emergency medical costs
  • Medical treatment costs
  • Cost of surgery
  • Medical and pharmaceutical equipment costs
  • Post-treatment follow-up or therapy costs
  • Lost income (during recovery)
  • Lost future income earning capacity (due to inability to work)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians have a duty to be responsible by supervising and controlling their children, obeying traffic signals, and walking on designated walkways. However, it is almost always true that the driver of the vehicle is responsible for some degree of neglect by not seeing or simply not allowing space for the pedestrian victim.

Pedestrian accidents are often caused by motorists who:

Pedestrian Accidents Involving Children

All too often, pedestrian accidents involve children. Small children are hard for drivers to notice; however, this is no excuse—especially in areas like school zones. The failure to observe posted speed limits or school bus stop signs is illegal and creates a serious safety hazard for children trying to cross the street.

If you or your child has been the victim of a pedestrian accident, first seek medical attention. Next, you should consult with an Orange County pedestrian accident lawyer at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. as soon as possible.

We can help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve.

  • I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”

  • They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim

    “It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can't be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them.”

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”
