Walking instead of driving has a number of benefits – it is better for your overall fitness, ditching the gas means you are doing your bit to preserve the environment, and you get that feeling of accomplishment when your step counter indicates you have reached your daily goal. Being more active and environmentally-conscious is to be applauded but, unfortunately, your choice to travel as a pedestrian also leaves you vulnerable to the behavior of motorists. Distracted driving is commonplace in San Francisco and the surrounding areas, and pedestrians can suffer traumatic injuries as a result of the negligent behavior of these careless motorists.
At Allegiance Law, we take a compassionate approach to all cases, offering the guidance and support you need after such a traumatic experience, whilst also adopting a comprehensive and aggressive approach to recovering the compensation you deserve.
Ultimately, pedestrian accidents are caused by the negligent or willfully dangerous behavior of motorists, and this tends to fit into one of several common themes. While handling pedestrian accident cases, our San Francisco attorneys have gained considerable experience in recovering damages after:
No two accidents are ever identical, so this list is intended as a guide only, not an exhaustive indication of what an Allegiance Law pedestrian accident attorney can help you with. No matter how your accident occurred, we will do our utmost to recover the damages and compensation you are entitled to.
We understand how traumatic an accident can be, particularly when you are facing a lengthy recovery period and the resulting loss of earnings, and pledge to handle your pedestrian accident claim in a compassionate, caring manner. Rest assured, while we will be compassionate towards you, our San Francisco pedestrian accident attorneys are significantly more aggressive while pursuing the defendant.
Not all pedestrian accidents involve being struck by a motorist – there are plenty of scenarios involving dangerous conditions causing injuries to innocent pedestrians. For example, where a section of road or sidewalk is in poor condition, the state or municipality has a legal responsibility to be aware of this and to rectify it as soon as is reasonably possible. If they fail in this duty, and you are injured as a result, an Allegiance Law San Francisco pedestrian accident attorney could help you to recover damages.
Similarly, our attorneys can pursue property or landowners for damages where an accident was caused by poorly maintained or dangerous conditions on private property.
However your pedestrian accident occurred, you do not deserve to suffer alone. You do deserve excellent legal representation from a San Francisco pedestrian accident attorney – call Allegiance Law today at 415-404-6395 for a case evaluation.
