The Problem Of Pedestrian Knockdowns
Pedestrians always end up on the losing side when they have been involved in an accident with a vehicle. And all too often, a pedestrian accident is a fatality. If you have been seriously injured or have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, the The Ellis Firm, APLC, will immediately get to work on your claim.
Even if you do not think you have a case, contact us at 951-289-0628. Meeting with an attorney will not obligate you to pursue legal action, but it may give you a different perspective and help you analyze all of your options.
We Make Sure Your Voice Is Heard
In the aftermath of an accident, the pedestrian is usually taken to an emergency room, while the driver is left behind to explain to police what happened. As a result, the police officer’s report may contain a one-sided version of how the accident happened. It’s not unusual for drivers to attempt to avoid responsibility by claiming the pedestrian was crossing against the light or outside of the designated crosswalk.
Our lawyers use accident reconstructionists to show what really happened. The sooner you contact our attorneys, the sooner we can go to work on your behalf, collecting and preserving evidence such as:
- Witness statements
- Videos from red light cameras
- Vehicle damage
