Lake Arrowhead Pedestrian Accident Attorney
When a vehicle hits a pedestrian, the injuries can be very severe. Severe spinal, head, neck,paralysis, broken bones, or loss of a limb may all happen to pedestrians when they are struck by vehicles.
Often, the driver of the vehicle, or their insurance company, will try to shift the blame for the accident onto the pedestrian. Police sometimes claim that the pedestrian was not inside the crosswalk when they come to the scene, as the pedestrian has fallen outside the crosswalk area. Insurance adjusters will many times affix the blame on the pedestrian, stating that the pedestrian should have noticed the car coming and got out of the way. Often it is difficult to get an insurance company to pay for the injury to a pedestrian than it is to pay for the injury to a person inside a vehicle.

In the case of a slip or fall accident, the law doesn’t hold businesses responsible for the accident unless the company or its employees failed to meet a legal duty of care.
If you want to sue for an injury that happened at a business location, you must prove that the business was legally at fault.
Slip and fall injuries can occur in many of ways. All business establishments can be sued for slips, falls, and collisions. The owners of a business can be sued based on poor hiring, supervision, or training of employees. Each state has its own rules that determine the standards of care that can apply in any personal injury case involving a business.
Courts know that businesses can’t preclude every slip and fall accident from happening. They require that businesses use the same amount of care as a reasonably prudent person would. This means guarding against foreseeable problems and taking reasonable precautions to prevent accidents. You can recover damages for many types of personal injury only if you can prove that the business failed in these duties.
