Vandenberg Village Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Vandenberg Village Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

At James McKiernan Lawyers, we understand the pleasure and practicality of walking places. However, we also understand the risks pedestrians run when taking even a short walk down the block. Children are particularly in danger because of their smaller size and underdeveloped safety instincts. When you or someone you love is injured in a pedestrian accident, speak with the Vandenberg Village pedestrian accident attorneys at James McKiernan Lawyers for legal guidance.

Every year, more than 100 people are killed in pedestrian in California. Thousands more are injured. Many accidents are caused by lack of motorist attention — cyclists are at a serious disadvantage in a collision with a car, truck or motorcycle. A study conducted by the University of North Carolina and the U.S. Department of Transportation analyzed 750 motor vehicle and pedestrian collisions. They found the main causes of pedestrian and auto accidents were:

  • Motorists failing to yield the right of way
  • Motorists overtaking pedestrians
  • Motorists unexpectedly turning
  • Pedestrian unexpectedly crossing the street
  • Distracted motorists/pedestrians

Vandenberg Village pedestrian accident attorneys understand that a motorist may be 100% at fault for an accident, or the pedestrian may share some of the blame. Even if you were partially at fault for the collision, you can still recover compensation under California’s comparative fault laws. If you do share blame with a motorist, your final award may be reduced according to your percentage of fault.
