Statistics show that this year, approximately 5,000 pedestrians will be involved in a fatal traffic accident and another 70,000 will suffer injuries. Additionally, nearly half of all deaths resulting from Hit and Run accidents occur between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., when children typically are returning home from school.

HIT AND RUN ATTORNEY IN SHERMAN OAKS CAN HELP
A knowledgeable Hit and Run Attorney at Hassanlou Law Firm in Sherman Oaks can investigate your case and evaluate your claim. Our lawyers know that even though laws are in place to protect pedestrians, drivers still speed, drive recklessly, lose control of their vehicles, and fail to obey traffic laws, putting pedestrians at serious risk for injury. However, drivers are responsible for exercising a reasonable level of care while operating their vehicles and for adhering to traffic regulations. If they fail to do so, they may be held legally liable for any accidents or injuries that result. If you are injured in a Pedestrian accident, it is essential that you speak with an attorney regarding your legal rights.
There are also many misconceptions surrounding Pedestrian law, such as that drivers are not at fault if they hit pedestrians who are jaywalking. The truth is that drivers who strike jaywalking pedestrians may still be at fault. Although pedestrians are also responsible for exercising reasonable care to maintain their own safety, several factors can influence who is at fault for Hit and Run accidents involving pedestrians and motor vehicles. The attorneys at Hassanlou Law offices can assist California personal injury victims throughout the state.
