Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Injured Pedestrians Throughout Orange County Including the Riverside, Anaheim and Santa Ana Areas
After being hit by car, the primary thing most people focus on is their health and their recovery. Likely you will be in extreme pain, and starting a course of medical treatment that might last months, if not years. Going to work might be out of the question and lost wages or income can start to weigh heavily on you. Another concern may be the question of who is responsible to pay for your medical bills – which may be accruing rapidly. If you don’t choose an appropriate attorney to assist you with the legalities, you may be left with the responsibility of paying for those bills out of pocket.
It’s critical that after you’ve been hit by a car or other vehicle, you contact an experienced pedestrian accident attorney. It’s important to contact an attorney before the medical bills begin to pile up. An experienced attorney will put you in contact with the right medical professionals, ensure you receive the medical treatment and rehabilitation you need, and demand monetary compensation on your behalf from the at-fault party’s insurance company. Your attorney should fight for your medial bills to be paid, your lost income and wages to be recovered, and for monetary compensation to be awarded to you for your pain and suffering.
As you can see, choosing the right representation can make a tremendous difference in the outcome of your accident case – as there is a lot involved and many moving parts to manage.

Immediate Steps to Take After Being Involved a Pedestrian Accident
If you or a loved one has been hit by a vehicle, it’s an emergency. Every pedestrian accident should be treated as an emergency. When compared to the weight and sheer power of moving vehicle, your physical body is no match. Pedestrian accidents often result in very severe, and often life-threatening, injuries. Our California pedestrian accident attorneys commonly see the following types of injuries result from pedestrian accidents:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Major cuts and bruising
- Head or Brain Injury
- Skull fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Amputated body parts
- Herniated discs
- Damage to internal organs
- Nerve damage
In any event, even if you believe your injuries are not severe, you should seek immediate medical attention. Often, the adrenaline from having just been in an accident can mask the true extent of one’s injuries. It might not be until hours, and sometimes days, later that you realize the true extent of your injuries. Immediate medical attention is critical. The sooner you tend to your health – the greater the chances that you will recover.
As soon as you’ve sought medical attention, your next step should be to contact an experienced injury attorney, who can guide you through the legalities involved and handle the monetary compensation aspect of your case. Your attorney should be able to assist you in determining the strength of your case, determining who will be responsible for the payment of your medical bills, dealing with the driver’s insurance company, and demanding fair compensation to be awarded to you for your injuries.
