Los Angeles County, including Glendale, is statistically one of the most deadly places to be a pedestrian. The city has launched Vision Zero, an ambitious program hoping to eliminate traffic accidents involving pedestrians by 2025. Unfortunately, those efforts are not enough to combat the reality that, on average, over 10 accidents involving pedestrians happen in LA every single day.
If you were a victim in a pedestrian accident, know that you are not alone. This story happens all too frequently — but there is something you can do about it. You can fight for compensation, even if the driver got away. Don’t face a big insurance company alone, without experienced legal representation actively advocating for your best interests. It’s the job of insurance companies to minimize their payouts and obligations when a claim is made. On the other side of that coin, it’s the job of our Glendale pedestrian injury lawyers to hold those insurance companies (and the driver that impacted you) accountable for making you financially whole. Far too many people simply roll over and accept that an accident will ruin them financially, without fighting for the proper amount of compensation they deserve.
Being the victim of a traffic accident as a pedestrian can be a devastating experience, to say the least. Chronic injuries, PTSD, emotional trauma, financial hardship, and other stressors suddenly enter your life without warning. It’s OK to ask for help, and it’s OK to let an experienced, compassionate law firm take the reins of responsibility off your shoulders and into our capable hands. You don’t need to walk this path alone — we’re here to connect you with medical specialists, work with our on-staff therapist, and provide you with the very best legal representation.

California pedestrian laws are clear that you do have the right-of-way, although they remind you that there are situations in which it is prudent and necessary to yield that right of way in order to prevent or mitigate an accident.
