Get The Compensation You Deserve After Being Hit By A Car

If you were injured or a loved one was killed while walking or running outdoors, you are not alone. Sources including USA Today and the Los Angeles Daily News have reported a significant rise in pedestrian accidents, injuries and deaths in the last few years.

Trying to get a handle on the trend and turn things around, experts find that certain areas of Los Angeles (and other regions) have more pedestrian accidents than others. Factors like the number of lanes, the number of driveway entrances and average vehicle speeds apparently influence the frequency of pedestrian accidents involving vehicles at a certain intersection, for example.

Additionally, there are many other aspects of motor vehicle and pedestrian traffic that contribute to the rise in pedestrian injuries and deaths. Discovering what caused your pedestrian accident (or your family member’s fatality) will be a key part of a personal injury claim or lawsuit aimed at getting compensation for you.

Engineer, Now A Trial Lawyer

Attorney Kenechi Agu at KRA Legal PC brings a rich educational and occupational history to the task of preparing a compelling case on your behalf after a pedestrian or bicycle accident. From law offices in Torrance, he represents clients throughout the Los Angeles region. A former engineer and corporate professional, he dedicates his efforts to recovering compensation for injured people. If he represents you, he will leave no stone unturned while searching for the elements that may:

  • Prove that another motorist or another person or entity was negligent and thus caused your accident
  • Verify the dollar amount needed to make you whole: paying for medical care, compensating you for pain and suffering, and/or compensating you for the loss of a valued family member
  • Convince a claims adjuster, judge or jury to order a settlement or verdict that is appropriate and ample enough to cover your expenses and losses, possibly including the effects of a catastrophic injury like a traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury

Don’t Wait To Get Legal Advice

After being hit by a car or truck in a serious accident, you can expect insurance representatives (from your own insurer or a liable party’s insurer) to try to settle things quickly and with the lowest costs to their companies. No matter how friendly they seem, remember that limiting payout of benefits is their job. You, your family and your attorney, on the other hand, will focus on obtaining the compensation you need to recover as fully as possible.
