We Win Cases
Automobiles, bicyclists, and pedestrians all share public space and roadways. Unfortunately, not everyone understands or observes the rules of the road that govern the right-of-way at crosswalks, stoplights and stop signs. The result? Hundreds of thousands of pedestrians are injured every year in the United States. Many of these injuries prove fatal. Tragically, the victims are often children and the elderly.
If you have been seriously injured (or a loved one was killed) in a pedestrian accident, the San Francisco pedestrian accident attorneys at Jones Clifford, LLP can help you obtain all of the compensation you deserve.
Pedestrian injuries are often caused by motorists who fail to:
- Yield the right of way
- Stop at a cross walk
- Come to a complete stop at a stop sign
- Stop before turning right on red at an intersection
- Look right, instead of left, while making a right turn at an intersection
- Travel too fast down neighborhood streets
You should know that the driver of the vehicle that struck you may offer a token settlement on the spot. Similarly, the driver’s insurance company may offer a quick but inadequate settlement for your injuries. It is important to note that the severity of an injury often does not manifest itself for hours, sometimes even days. The adrenaline and shock associated with an accident can mask injuries and their symptoms. Insurance companies are aware of this and know that many victims will accept a speedy settlement to take care of immediate medical expenses.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident, contact us before accepting any settlement from the driver of the vehicle that hit you or the driver’s insurance copy. The San Francisco pedestrian accident lawyers at Jones Clifford, LLP are dedicated to maximizing your compensation and have been helping injured clients for over 50 years. We will evaluate your case for free and you won’t owe us anything for our services unless we recover money for your injuries.
