Fatal Pedestrian Accident Attorney
When a car collides with a runner, jogger, skateboarder, rollerblader or other person on foot, the pedestrian always comes out the loser. Victims frequently suffer spinal cord injuries, head injuries, broken bones and, saddest of all, they are often killed in the accident.
When someone you care about dies, it is traumatic and emotional. When your loss comes as a direct result of a driver’s careless or reckless actions on the road, your pain and grief may be mixed with deep anger.
If someone you care about died in a California accident, no amount of money can ever heal the pain of losing a loved one. At the law firm of Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, we fully understand this truth. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over the span of only one year, 612 California pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents.

Wrongful Death Claims Against Negligent Drivers
Contrary to what some drivers think, pedestrians do have legal rights. They have the right to use crosswalks, sidewalks and other designated parts of the road, and they frequently have the right of way over motor vehicles. Our law firm tenaciously advocates for our clients’ rights when negligent drivers cause needless death. Examples of negligent driver conduct include:
- Texting while driving
- Speeding and driving recklessly
- Drunk driving
- Driving on too little sleep
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks
- Making an illegal turn
