Orange County Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Orange County Pedestrian Accident Attorney
If you have been struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian, you need an experienced Orange County pedestrian accident attorney on your side. In California, pedestrians always have the right of way, but this isn’t always the practice.  In this fast paced world, drivers regularly “roll through” stop signs, make turns without checking crosswalks, and generally drive under the influence of distraction and inattentiveness.  When this kind of careless behavior results in a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle, an injured pedestrian – under the law – is entitled to seek compensation from the offending vehicle operator.

Although not required, a pedestrian injured by a vehicle should work with a Orange County pedestrian accident attorney to hold the driver accountable.  Not only are those who work with an Orange County pedestrian accident attorney more likely to receive full and fair compensation for their injuries, they are also less likely to be taken advantage of by insurance companies concerned more with the bottom line than with the victim.

As credentialed personal injury professionals, the Gibson & Hughes team is experienced and ready to take your case forward.  We have represented dozens of clients and secured millions of dollars in compensation on their behalf.  Following any pedestrian accident that results in an injury, the victim should make contact with a professional personal injury attorney who can advise on the merits of the claim and the person’s legal options – the Gibson & Hughes team can do both.  One example of a pedestrian accident case that we successfully represented is that of the woman who was walking through the parking lot of her work when a car backed into her, knocking her down and injuring her knee, requiring surgery.  With one of our pedestrian accident lawyers by her side, the victim was able to secure $125,000 in compensation for her injuries.

Don’t wait to seek compensation for injuries sustained as a result of another person’s carelessness.  Time may invalidate a claim.
