San Bernardino Pedestrian Accident Attorney
When a negligent driver strikes a pedestrian in a crosswalk, it is the pedestrian who pays the price.

At Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, we hold negligent drivers accountable. We have successfully recovered more than $130 million for our injured clients in San Bernardino and throughout the state of California.

Determining Liability After a San Bernardino Pedestrian Accident
In California, pedestrians have the right of way in crosswalks, regardless of where the crosswalk is located or whether it is marked. Even if you are struck while crossing a street outside of a crosswalk, the driver may incur significant liability if they could have or should have seen you.
Regardless of the circumstances of your accident, it’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Our law firm will act promptly to collect and preserve evidence of liability, such as witness statements and photographs of vehicle damage.
Pedestrian Accidents on University Campuses
Many of the pedestrian accident cases we work on have come from locals who have been hurt while walking through a local San Bernardino university or college. On many university campuses, some paths are used by pedestrians and motorists alike, which increases the risk of a pedestrian accident. When such an accident unfolds, pinpointing liability can be a little difficult. Was the driver instructed or permitted to use that walkway? Or was the pedestrian not paying attention to nearby traffic, including traffic in the form of golf carts and smaller vehicles? We will have to investigate and answer all of these questions to make the most of your case.
