Recent statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal that pedestrian accident injuries and fatalities continue to rise. California has the unfortunate claim of having the greatest number of pedestrian deaths of any state in the country. Experts say that two reasons for the increased risk to walkers are speed and the use of alcohol by those involved in the accidents.

Negligent Behaviors Lead to Injuries

Chances are, if you’ve been the victim of a pedestrian accident you are more concerned about dealing with your injuries and the other difficulties you are currently encountering than the cause of the accident, but if a driver’s negligence caused your accident you are entitled to compensation. Negligence is defined as the failure of one party to use the appropriate care required under specific circumstances. In addition to speeding or driving under the influence other forms of negligence on the part of a driver leading to a pedestrian accident include:

  • Drowsy driving
  • Texting and driving or some other form of distracted driving
  • Failure to stop at a stop sign
  • Not yielding

When a car and a walker are entangled in an accident it’s inevitably the pedestrian that suffers the most injury. In many cases a pedestrian accident results in several different injuries such as lacerations, broken bones, concussion, traumatic brain injury, muscle sprains and strains, torn ligaments and even spinal cord damage. Our experienced pedestrian lawyers have successfully prevailed in many cases similar to yours. Our attorneys will collect all the necessary evidence from witnesses, photographs, documents and police and medical records needed to prove your case.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
