Every year, thousands of pedestrians are injured and killed in accidents caused by reckless motor vehicle drivers. Unfortunately, drivers and their insurance companies often deny liability and make recovering compensation difficult for injured pedestrians and their families. Even when the driver’s insurance company offers to settle the claim, the offer is often inadequate and does not fairly compensate the injured pedestrian.
The pedestrian accident attorneys at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger represent injured clients and surviving family members who have lost loved ones in pedestrian accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by someone else, you should not have to pay for their negligent or reckless conduct. Contact our office for a no-cost and no-obligation case consultation.

Accident Investigation And Liability in Foster City Pedestrian Cases
We thoroughly examine pedestrian accidents to discover and determine all responsible parties. In some cases, only one party is responsible for the accident, and in other cases, there might be multiple defendants in your claim. For example, if the at-fault driver was working at the time of the accident, the driver’s employer might also be liable for the accident. If poorly maintained roads or insufficient crosswalk designations played a role in your accident, you might have a claim against the negligent driver and the responsible government entity. If a bicyclist in Foster City hits a pedestrian because they were riding on the sidewalk, they would be liable.
