Pedestrian Safety and Rights
Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are all too common. There are instances where environmental conditions like fog or heavy rain affects visibility, leading to pedestrian accidents. Other times, negligence on the part of motorists results in serious injuries to pedestrians. No matter the cause of a pedestrian accident, the injuries sustained in these types of incidents are often severe.
Drivers have a tendency to be distracted and inattentive to pedestrians crossing the Street. What they often forget is that California law mandates that a pedestrian has the right-of-way once he or she is more than halfway across the roadway. This is an important fact to keep in mind when determining liability in a pedestrian accident personal injury case. We here at the Law Offices of William C. Bibb have represented many pedestrian injury victims over the years, and serve the greater part of Southern California:
Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Escondido, Vista, Oceanside, Encinitas, Del Mar, Carmel Valley, La Mesa, and many other cities.
Representation you can Trust
I have almost 40 years of experience representing and advocating on behalf of accident victims. My professional background in medical/legal issues allows me to prove liability and account for my clients' immediate and long-term medical needs through settlement or trial awards. I also have the expertise necessary to challenge and disapprove inappropriate police report findings. Accident reconstruction experts are often required to determine who was fault. Things like skid marks, adjacent store owners, neighbors, prior accidents, and the timing of traffic signals can all be taken into consideration.
