Daly City Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians face the risk of suffering catastrophic injuries and damages whenever automobiles are present. Under California laws, pedestrians have the right of way in many traffic circumstances, especially when crossing the street in a designated crosswalk. However, even when they do not have the right of way, automobile drivers are still responsible for exercising caution and care around pedestrians and other vulnerable road users.
If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. The attorneys at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger represent injured pedestrians and their families in claims against responsible parties. We know that the consequences of a pedestrian accident can be life-changing, and we will fight for maximum compensation for you and your family.

Pedestrian Accident Liability
After a pedestrian accident, it is critical to determine the cause of the accident and liable parties. Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate your accident to determine cause and liability by speaking with witnesses and first responders, going over the police report, and gathering other existing evidence. Most pedestrian accident cases involve one or more negligent parties and their insurance companies.
When insurance companies are responsible for paying your accident injuries and damages, their goal is to pay as little as possible to settle your claim. Our attorneys work with insurance company defendants in most of our personal injury cases, and we stand up to unfair and inadequate settlement offers. If insurance adjusters do not agree to a full and fair settlement, our attorneys will be ready to take your case to trial.
Pedestrian Accident Compensation
We carefully evaluate our clients’ injuries and damages to determine their past, ongoing, and future losses. Depending on your particular circumstance, your compensation may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and mental anguish. If you lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you might be entitled to compensation for the losses you have suffered under a wrongful death claim.
