What Are The Most Common Types of Pedestrian Accidents?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a pedestrian is killed or injured in a traffic accident every 2 hours in the United States. That staggering number equals up to over 70,000 deaths each year in this country. Los Angeles is most certainly a part of the equation, with at least one third of all accidents in city limits involving a pedestrian. Unfortunately, a vast majority of these accidents could have been easily prevented had the individual behind the wheel taken proper care. Some of the more common reasons for such collisions include:
- Drunk driving
- Texting while driving
- Distractive driving
- Speeding through intersections
- Failing to observe red lights or stop signs
- Failing to look for crossing pedestrian on right hand turns
Each pedestrian accident is unique however, and it will be up to your attorney to help determine causality.
How Long do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Los Angeles?
Not as long as you may believe. In California the statute of limitations gives you a maximum of 2 years from the date the injury is discovered in which to file. Failure to do so in that amount of time can lead to a loss of compensation and forfeiture of your rights as the victim. Don’t let the deadline creep up on you. Contact Kahn Roven, LLP today and begin building your case before it is too late. You deserve compensation for your injuries and the at-fault driver must be held accountable for their negligence.
