Pedestrian-vehicle accidents are all-too common in busy cities like Costa Mesa and Irvine. Pedestrian dangers are everywhere-a person can be run over by a car even in pedestrian crosswalks and when people on foot have the right-of-way due to a "Pedestrian Crossing" sign or a green light. Drivers who are texting behind the wheel may run a red light and kill a pedestrian instantly upon impact or crash into someone who is jaywalking. Sadly, an irresponsible driver may also be an uninsured motorist or a driver without enough insurance to cover the often steep medical expenses required in the case of pedestrian injuries. That means the hurt pedestrian must pursue compensation through his or her own "Uninsured Motorist Coverage," which can be a legal nightmare.
Whatever the circumstances of your pedestrian accident, attorney Daniel C. Carlton wants to help you hold the driver accountable for his or her actions. Remember, you didn't do anything wrong. You shouldn't have to pay for someone else's mistakes. Contact our Costa Mesa law firm and schedule an appointment today.
