Who Can Be Liable in a Los Angeles Pedestrian Accident Case?

In the days and weeks following a pedestrian accident, you may feel overwhelmed as you adjust to the reality of what has occurred. While your recovery should be your main priority after suffering harm in a pedestrian accident, it is also imperative that you begin to consider your legal options to help you pursue justice. 

When beginning the process of filing your pedestrian accident claim, one of the first steps our team of Los Angeles lawyers will take is to identify the at-fault party responsible for the physical and emotional trauma you have suffered. We can identify this party by launching a full investigation into your case. Some parties who are commonly found liable in pedestrian accident cases include the following:

  • The driver of a motor vehicle like a car or truck
  • The pedestrian, in some cases
  • Another pedestrian that pushed or dragged you out into the road
  • A government entity

While there are various parties who could be liable for your pedestrian accident case, our trusted Los Angeles lawyers will collect all necessary evidence to identify who should be held responsible as you pursue the justice you are owed.

Proving Liability in a California Pedestrian Accident Case

Once the at-fault party has been identified, the next step our Los Angeles lawyers will take to build your pedestrian accident case is to prove their liability. Proving liability is a highly important step in any personal injury case. Without proving liability, you will not be able to pursue the justice and fair compensation you are owed for your injuries and losses. 

To prove liability in your Los Angeles pedestrian accident case, our lawyers will collect evidence of the four factors of negligence in your case. The four factors of negligence are as follows:

  • The at-fault party owed you a duty of care
  • The duty of care owed to you was breached by the liable party
  • The breach of duty led to the pedestrian accident and your subsequent injuries
  • You have suffered losses as a result

Can You Recover Compensation After a Los Angeles Pedestrian Accident Claim?

After being harmed in a pedestrian accident, you may suffer serious injuries that can lead to costly expenses as you recover. However, you should never have to pay for injuries and losses you did not cause. If another party is responsible for the harm you have suffered, you have the right to pursue justice by filing a pedestrian accident claim. 

When you file your claim, our trusted legal team can negotiate for the damages you may be owed. The damages you may be eligible to recover include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death
  • Loss of consortium

When filing your claim, the insurance providers will likely try to get you to accept a lowball offer. However, when you work with our experienced legal team, we can ensure you are able to pursue the maximum compensation you may be owed for your pedestrian accident claim.
