Protecting your rights after a car accident in Riverside County
Auto accidents can happen for many different reasons, many of which can be traced back to irresponsible actions or negligence on the part of the driver or vehicle manufacturer. The result of a car accident can be serious, keeping you out of work and facing large medical bills.
We help you seek compensation from the parties at fault, including:
- Drivers who speed, are inattentive of traffic conditions and/or signals, who fail to stop as required, do not account for changing weather conditions or fail to signal properly before turning or changing lanes
- Trucking companies and other employers that allow their employees to drive unsafely
- Government agencies that fail to provide for the proper maintenance of roads and highways
Exploring your options after a pedestrian accident
Some of the most serious accidents involve cars or trucks hitting pedestrians. Whether you are walking, running or riding a bicycle, you have as much right to the road as motor vehicles, and you should be able to legally use sidewalks and crosswalks without putting yourself in danger. Many drivers fail to watch out for pedestrians, however, resulting in severe personal injuries. And just like with auto accidents, poorly maintained public spaces and other issues may be the cause of a pedestrian accident.
Regardless of the cause of your injury, you need a lawyer who has experience with these types of cases—and one who will fight hard to get you the compensation you need and deserve to make a full physical recovery.
