Palm Springs Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Representing Pedestrians, Walkers, Joggers, & Bikers

Drivers on the road often make mistakes. They may become inattentive due to their phone, eating, passengers in their vehicle, and other potential distractions. Others may consciously make decisions to break traffic laws that they think are "no big deal."

Unfortunately, when these situations occur, walkers, runners, bikers, and others may end up getting hit and suffering serious injuries. Pedestrians have little protection and are especially vulnerable to getting hurt when an accident involves a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds. If you have been injured while in a crosswalk or on a sidewalk by a negligent driver, talk to our team of Palm Springs pedestrian accident lawyers at Gilbert & Bourke.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Some of the most common ways in which pedestrians are injured include:

  • Being struck by a vehicle that is backing out
  • Drivers making unsafe turns at intersections
  • Being struck in a parking lot
  • Drivers who do not yield to pedestrians

On the last point, California Vehicle Code §2195 states that pedestrians generally have right of way when walking in either marked crosswalks or unmarked crosswalks at an intersection. Vehicles are required to drive with "due care" and take any necessary actions to avoid striking pedestrians in these situations.

As an injured pedestrian, you have the right to pursue financial compensation if your injuries were caused by a negligent, reckless, or distracted motorist. At Gilbert & Bourke, we have vast experience handling all types of pedestrian accident cases. Our lawyers have a strong track record of recovering damages for our clients.
