Of the millions who travel the streets of Los Angeles daily, pedestrians are perhaps the most vulnerable. Cars are designed to protect their passengers. Bikes and motorcycles can maneuver quickly and their riders often wear specialized safety equipment. Pedestrians, however, do not have the luxuries of speed or safety equipment and are mostly at the mercy of others on the road.

It’s an unfortunate fact that L.A. is a dangerous city for people who choose to walk rather than drive. According to the Los Angeles Times, pedestrians make up a third of all traffic accident fatalities, three times the national average. The most dangerous areas in Los Angeles for pedestrians are MacArthur Park, Hollywood, Florence, and Pico-Union.
By their nature, pedestrian accidents can result in major injuries. Victims of these accidents might find themselves in need of medical attention and legal representation. The Pedestrian Accident Lawyers at Bergener Mirejovsky are equipped with the experience and resources to give your case the attention that it deserves.

- Don’t assume you are fine. As a pedestrian, you are very vulnerable to injury. Sometimes injuries can be masked immediately following an accident or traumatic event and won’t manifest until later.
- Call the police. Even if you think you might be partly responsible, a police report can greatly aid your case.
- Take pictures and video at the scene of the accident, if possible.
- Get the contact information of any witnesses.
- Find out your rights. Consult with a pedestrian accident attorney as soon as possible.
Depending on your injuries, you may have not been able to take pictures, or obtain contact information. That’s ok. Our firm can help you obtain this information quickly in order to pursue your claim. The sooner you call us, the more effective we can be.
How Can an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer Help?
Accidents aren’t always cut and dry. As a pedestrian, you have the same rights as drivers injured in auto accidents. These rights extend to compensation for medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and possibly punitive damages.
Insurance companies make it their business to minimize the amount of money paid to accident victims. It can be difficult to deal with the insurance adjusters, especially when they have endless resources and you are trying to handle your claim alone. The best way to make sure you receive the maximum award for your claim is to enlist the help of a qualified personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
At Bergener Mirejovsky, we pride ourselves on our relationships with our clients. These relationships come from the attention each case receives at the hands of our experienced personal injury attorneys and the satisfaction of those we represent.
