People tend to walk for recreation and as a form of exercise. In many cities, this is also a form of transportation. Walking through your neighborhood is a great alternative to using a car, especially when traffic can be congested and parking can be fleeting. Unfortunately, pedestrians are no match for a motor vehicle when the two meet in a collision on the road.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2017, 16% of the more than 37,000 people killed in traffic accidents were pedestrians. The harsh truth is that the human body cannot withstand the force put upon it in a collision with a motor vehicle. Avrek Law Firm’s Oxnard pedestrian accident attorneys help victims of accidents to ensure they receive the maximum compensation they deserve.

Injuries and Damages in a Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian accidents can result in devasting injuries, including death. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident caused by someone else’s negligence, that person is legally responsible for your injuries.
In California, pedestrians who have been injured in an accident with an automobile are able to hold the responsible party liable for:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
After a pedestrian accident, the road to recovery can be difficult, but having the money needed to pay medical bills and cover expenses while you recover offers a certain peace of mind. Speaking to a knowledgeable Oxnard pedestrian accident lawyer is crucial to the outcome of your accident claim.
