Pedestrian Accident Modesto

With no protection, pedestrians have no defenses against cars and other motor vehicles. Each year hundreds of pedestrians are injured or killed along California roadways. These accidents typically take place when pedestrians are legally using crosswalks, sidewalks or traveling along the shoulder of a road.

At Arata, Swingle, Van Egmond & Heitlinger in Modesto, we represent pedestrians who have been injured in accidents that were caused by someone else, including walkers who have been bitten by dogs. We also handle wrongful death claims, representing the families of loved ones who have lost their lives as a result of an accident caused by negligence.

When you are hurt, we can help. Our skilled trial lawyers have more than 70 years of combined experience handling personal injury claims. Call us at (209) 522-2211 or e-mail us.

Aggressive Representation for Pedestrian Accidents Injuries

Many factors make it difficult for pedestrians to recover the damages they are due. Sometimes pedestrians are blamed for an accident. In the case of a hit-and-run, it may be difficult to identify the driver.

Our attorneys treat every case as if we were headed to trial. This means conducting a comprehensive investigation of the accident to uncover the truth. We interview witnesses, review police reports and utilize accident reconstruction experts to show who was at fault.

Pedestrian Accident Triumph

We recently represented a young woman who had been injured in a dart-out accident when she was two years old. Nothing had been done to care for her in the ensuing years resulting in a serious hip impairment that caused her pain and to walk with a limp. When she was 18 years old, she walked into our office and sought out our assistance. We were able to help her in obtaining a meaningful settlement, including pain and suffering, for her hip deformity caused by the accident.

Common Injuries to Pedestrians

Injuries to pedestrians tend to be much more traumatic than other personal injury claims, including:

  • Shoulder injuries and AC joint disruptions
  • Broken bones
  • Scarring
  • Spinal cord injury, head and brain injury, and neck injury
  • Permanent, catastrophic injury
  • Death
