Everyone walks in the Bay Area and everyone walks to avoid using their cars. People walk to grocery stores, parks, school, dinner etc.…However, it is unlikely that people walk on the sidewalks or crosswalks in fear, but in accident prone areas, the vehicle wins every time.

At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we believe that it is your right to seek financial compensation for the injuries you’ve incurred because of someone else.
Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Our attorneys have represented pedestrian accident victims who have suffered minor to severe injuries. There are many minor pedestrian accidents that go unreported throughout the Bay Area. However, there are thousands of fatal pedestrian accidents that occur in the United States. Pedestrians face greater risk for injuries when sharing the roads with vehicles. Many of our injured clients have suffered from:
- Open wounds, cuts, bruises
- Fractures and tears
- Spinal and brain injuries
Who is at Fault in a Pedestrian Accident?
It is important to know that vehicles must yield to pedestrians at all times. However, pedestrians are supposed to use crosswalks and follow the rules of the road. It is common for pedestrian accidents to occur near freeways and highways, where pedestrians are NOT allowed to walk. Our pedestrian accident attorneys represent Oakland injured pedestrians who have been struck crossing a cross walk, and even j-walking. There are times where pedestrians are hit as a result of another accident. Every accident is circumstantial and our attorneys will conduct a full investigation to determine liability. If you have recently been injured and are unsure about your rights, contact one of our pedestrian accident lawyers for a free case consultation.
