Posted on: April 4, 2015

Los Angeles has more cars that virtually any area in the country.  You may find yourself in need of a Pedestrian Accident Attorney.

It can be tempting to submit to the impulses of wanting to react to the constant frenzy that seemingly never subsides.  Sometimes, people do.  Civilians every day react to neglectful drivers, daring pedestrians and rebellious bikers.  It is imperative that one remains calm and alert to the other occupiers roaming the busy streets of LA in order to secure his or her own well-being.  Crosswalk injuries are common, and you need a capable Crosswalk Injury Attorney.

Webb & Ord law firm aids numerous clients daily from all over the city.  Located conveniently on Hollywood & Vine street where the firm is accessible to nearly anyone in LA, our attorneys are well aware of the dangers cross walkers are subjected to, being secured at one of the most pedestrian devoted crossroads in the country.  It isn’t always a guarantee that just because a crosswalk sign flashes for pedestrians to walk, that it is entirely safe to do so.  Cars will recklessly rush past walkers to beat or avoid the waiting time.  Fellow pedestrians will impatiently dart into the crosswalk zone, believing they are capable of maneuvering through traffic, before the pedestrian sign signals to actually walk.

Honking horns, smoking tires, screeching breaks…these noises are part of a pedestrians experience here in the city. Because of the high faculty of vehicles, pedestrians should remain cautious and alert not just at their own expense, but also in defense from neglectful bystanders and/or vehicle operators.

Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents that result in the need for a Pedestrian Accident Attorney are:

 

  • Speeding drivers
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Ignoring pedestrian caution signs such as:
    • crosswalks
    • school zones
  • Neglectful, distracted drivers
  • Passing stopped buses/other forms of transportation
