Los Angeles Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Los Angeles is renowned for being a city whose highways are choked with traffic, but an increasing number of residents are choosing to get around by bike or walking when it’s feasible. Biking and walking are the main mode of getting around for many students at city schools and the many college campuses throughout the state.

Of course, increased bike and foot traffic means an increase in the number of accidents involving bicyclists and pedestrians. A pedestrian or bicyclist who is struck and injured by a car, truck, bus, train or other vehicle has the same right to seek financial compensation as a person who is injured in a car crash or a workplace accident.

Strong Advocates For Serious Injury Cases

When a bicyclist or pedestrian on foot is struck by a motor vehicle, the injuries can be serious, life-changing or even life-threatening. If the accident was not your fault, the financial burden of medical treatment, extended rehabilitation and lost wages should not fall to you.

If your bicycle or pedestrian accident involved a hit-and-run motorist, you may be able to collect compensation from your own insurance provider to cover medical costs and lost wages. Let us review your case and recommend the best steps to take.

The lawyers at Heller Law Firm, APC in Woodland Hills, California, will pursue full compensation for all costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering if you or a loved one is seriously injured or killed in a bicycle or pedestrian accident. To learn more, call 818-591-6388.

Experienced Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Pedestrian and bicycle accidents can be extremely complex. Insurance companies often push back aggressively on the amount that is owed to a victim, or may even attempt to show that the victim was at fault.

We have a long track record of standing up to insurance companies and their teams of attorneys. We understand California law as it pertains to the rights of pedestrians and bicyclists. Our experience of more than 40 years in personal injury law allows us to accurately predict strategies the insurance companies may take and then prepare a strong argument to support our clients’ claims.

Act Now

If you were injured in a bicycle accident that was caused by a road that was defectively designed or maintained, we may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against a municipality that was responsible for keeping that roadway safe. There are tighter deadlines for filing civil cases against government entities, so it is important to reach us as soon as possible after your accident.
