Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

The pedestrian accident lawyers at RAHMAN LAW PC not only represent pedestrians who have been hit by cars, they also are actively trying to make the laws better protect pedestrians by working with non-profit groups, community groups and cities and counties to help get changes put in place. That is why we truly understand how to best represent the interests of pedestrians hit by cars, buses, trucks, or motorcycles.

When drivers don’t pay attention, pedestrians get hurt or killed. In 2010, 4,280 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents in the U.S. and another 70,000 pedestrians were injured. Older adults and children are most at risk for being injured or killed in a vehicular accident. In San Francisco alone 21 pedestrians were struck and killed by drivers in 2013, the highest number of pedestrian deaths since 2007. In 2012 in San Francisco there were a total of 948 injury collisions involving vehicles and pedestrians. In San Francisco, vehicle versus pedestrian collisions make up almost 25% of all collisions, with the results being a fatality in 54% of the cases.

Under California law, while both drivers and pedestrians must be aware that motor vehicles can cause serious injuries, drivers must use more care than pedestrians. Pedestrian accidents happen because, drivers run stoplights or stop signs, drivers failing to yield the right-of-way or ignoring pedestrians in crosswalks, and drivers not paying attention to pedestrians. Speed is responsible for ten times the number of pedestrian injuries in San Francisco as driving under the influence.
