Fighting for the Rights of Injured Pedestrians

When most people think about auto accidents, they typically don't consider people walking on foot. However a Pasadena pedestrian accident lawyer will tell you that common collisions don't only involve two or more cars. A decent amount of auto accidents just involve one driver.

The good news is that we are here to help. The lawyers at Mendez & Sanchez have been taking on pedestrian accident claims for several years with great success. If you have a case, we are prepared and willing to fight for you.

What Should I Do If I'm Hurt in a Pasadena Pedestrian Accident?

Knowing what to do after you are hit by a car while walking is necessary so that you can preserve your rights and legal options in case you are seriously hurt or have other damages.

As increasingly more individuals turn to either public transportation or walking as an alternative to traveling by vehicle, more pedestrians end up on the public streets. This is particularly true in metropolitan areas like Pasadena, where people frequently walk from bus stops, "L" stops, or rail stations to their homes or places of employment.

Too often, pedestrians are struck by motorists that are too distracted to see them crossing the street or walking behind a car. And when this occurs, it will be the pedestrian, not the motorist, who pays the price.
