Local Pedestrian Accident Attorney Serving the Antelope Valley

Walking around the Antelope Valley and its surrounding areas can be one of the most dangerous activities you take part in. Since those who like to walk or jog generally do not wear any protection while walking in public, they are particularly subject to serious personal injury or wrongful death in the event of a collision with another vehicle on the road. The pedestrian accident attorneys at Kistler Law Firm fight to see that those injured and their families are compensated for the harm done to them by negligent or distracted drivers.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

While pedestrians have a duty to cross streets with care, automobile drivers have a duty to be aware of their surroundings and drive accordingly. Drivers should expect that there may be pedestrians on the road, especially the congested ones.

Common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Failing to obey traffic signs or signals
  • Failing to yield at crosswalks
  • Failing to check for pedestrians before entering or reversing out of parking lots
  • Making improper turns
  • Texting while driving or other distracted driving Help is Available

If you decided to walk or jog in public, you are encouraged to keep your ears open and look both ways before crossing a street. However, all the care in the world cannot protect you from a negligent, reckless, or aggressive driver. If you have been injured as a pedestrian, please contact Kistler Law Firm to speak with a pedestrian accident attorney about your rights to recover compensation for the harm done to you.
