How a Pedestrian Accident Case Works
When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle and suffers an injury, personal injury law comes into play. This legal framework gives the accident victim fair compensation for their injuries and provides them with sufficient funds to aid recovery (such as medical bills, lost wages, or physiotherapy).
Personal injury law also accounts for any loss of earnings or other expenses. The compensation represents justice, and we seek full justice for our clients.
Sometimes referred to as Tort Law, personal injury law (including pedestrian accidents) includes two elements, liability, and damages. If an accident was someone’s fault, they are liable.
Examples of liability include distracted driving like looking at a smartphone or eating while behind the wheel. If another party is found liable, they are responsible for compensating pedestrian accident victims for damages.
What Does Negligence and Breach of Duty Mean?
Negligence from a legal standpoint means a failure to exercise the care that a reasonable person would exercise in the circumstances relating to the pedestrian accident. In order to establish negligence and, therefore, liability, there are four key issues.
- Duty - If a motorist is driving a car, it is their duty to drive safely.
- Breach - If a motorist is not following traffic laws, that represents a breach.
- Causation - Causation links the breach of duty and the injury or harm to a client’s claim. The injury must be a result of the breach of duty and not self-sustained.
- Damages - Damages are sometimes used as another word for "compensation," but in this sense, they actually mean the injury or harm that a pedestrian sustained. This would be caused by a breach of duty.

Every year thousands of pedestrian accidents occur in Los Angeles. Shockingly, according to statistics published by the Los Angeles County Government, as high as 20% of pedestrians involved in accidents were under 18 years of age and 2% in this age group died of their injuries during the year of the report.
With such a high number of children and teen fatalities in pedestrian-car accidents, it’s easy to see that this is not just an issue of legal importance, but it’s an ethically significant statistic too. It’s almost unthinkable that so many young lives could be lost due to breaches of duty by motorists.
The same report revealed that half of all victims of pedestrian accidents were hit at 20 mph or greater speeds.
