Pedestrians, provided they’re following signals and walking within the painted area outlined by cities, are completely innocent parties when they’re hit by oncoming vehicles.
Numerous pedestrian accidents – over 70,000 in 2015 alone – cause unneeded injuries and even death. A hefty price to pay for walking back to your car or to meet your loved one, indeed.
Compass Law Group PC employs top-rated Los Angeles cross walk accident attorneys who know what rights pedestrians are afforded, what rules vehicles must obey when approaching cross walks, and can collect compensation for victims or surviving families.
Strong cases need stronger advocacy. We offer fair representation to victims who’ve been injured or killed in pedestrian cross walk incidents across Los Angeles.
Legalese is an interesting yet complex group of terms, cases and facts which Compass Law Group PC uses to defend clients who aren’t accustomed to courtroom etiquette. Does it require having knowledge of legal terminology and the ability to cite case law to hold someone accountable for hitting you? The Constitution affords everyone to hold anyone accountable in court without representation, or pro se. Problems arise when defendants aren’t adequately prepared to mount their offense.
The insurance company who gets called will review the facts surrounding how, when and why some random pedestrian got nailed walking nonchalantly between traffic. They will then take those facts, put whatever spin on them is required to lessen their liability, and finally present victims with a pittance for compensation. Victims, who already feel helpless and may feel compelled to grab whatever lifeline is thrown, will often accept this poor excuse of a check. All because they weren’t privy to insurance law and their rights.
Fighting alone doesn’t render more money. Your incident will be dissected, recreated and somehow blamed on you. One sentence in an outdated law book may stop you from getting paid anything (so they’ll have you think, at least).
Now hire one of our Los Angeles crosswalk attorneys, and you’ll immediately see the difference. Insurance adjusters and attorneys for insurance companies cringe knowing they’re dealing with our firm. Our expectations of settling much higher than they’re wanting to is obvious in how we handle your case. These much greater results stem from our ability to talk in legalese with attorneys and other people complicit to your cross-walk incident.
Pedestrian walking areas were painted in most cities to protect people walking from one sidewalk to another. The signals were put on posts to protect drivers from random folks running across the street through traffic, and protect pedestrians from cars trying to ‘beat a light’.
If you, a loved one or family member were injured while legally crossing the street, you may be owed compensation equal to your injuries, loss of wages, pain and suffering, along with whatever relief courts could deem appropriate.

Manufacturers claim they stand by everything they assemble. They’ll claim the efficacy of parts is unmatched, customer support is top-notch and products that enter mainstream retail will satisfy even the stingiest customer.
Any occupiable establishment, including vacant land used for events, is subject to California premise liability laws. Restaurants, retail stores, rental properties, you name it – premises liabilities are clearly defined by state legislature. Once people are injured, a foray of legal messes unravel.
Drivers don’t wake up one morning and decide it’s time to wreck their vehicles. It unfortunately happens daily in California, however, and the aftermath can change lives forever.
Los Angeles motor vehicle accidents drivers endure are painful both financially, and physically.
Dogs have an equivocally unpredictable demeanor to their human being owners. Sure, many people use their dogs for different purposes: seeing-eye, guarding property, showmanship, competition or simply accompaniment.
Accidents that are expected to permanently prohibit individuals from remaining gainfully employed are called catastrophic accidents, most which occur while operating motorized modes of transportation. Life-altering accidents of this magnitude are often tough for families and friends to deal with, causing depression in victims which can lead to suicidal thoughts.
