Newport Beach Pedestrian Injury Attorneys
Protecting Your Rights After a Pedestrian Accident
Most pedestrian accidents happen because drivers are not paying attention or they fail to yield the right-of-way at crosswalks or intersections. When this happens, pedestrians can suffer life-changing, catastrophic injuries, or even lose their lives. For more than 30 years, the law offices of Robinson Calcagnie Robinson Shapiro Davis, Inc. (RCRSD) have represented pedestrians seriously injured by motorists in a variety of intersection, crosswalk and roadway accidents.
Our Los Angeles car accident lawyers send investigators to pedestrian accident scenes in order to document and preserve evidence such as skid marks, debris, and roadway scuffs, as well as scene conditions such as roadway surface, lighting, traffic signals, and signs. While gathering data from the scene of a pedestrian accident, we work with accident reconstruction and human factor experts to examine and determine the conditions existing at the time of the accident. This may include determining precise movement, speeds and forces involved in the accident to decide what a driver did or failed to do. The vehicle operator may not be the only cause of a pedestrian injury. Occasionally, when roadway design and maintenance issues may have been a legal cause of a pedestrian collision, we retain roadway design and engineering experts to evaluate the potential liability of the responsible government agency.

Determining the Financial Impact of Your Injuries
Pedestrian knockdowns can result in serious head trauma or spinal cord injuries that may require a lifetime of care. Our pedestrian accident lawyers work closely with healthcare planners and economic specialists to quantify both your current and long-term healthcare and economic needs. When catastrophic injuries are involved, we retain economists and healthcare cost experts to project long-term expenditures such as in-home care, home modifications, and medical equipment, as well as to evaluate lost earnings and lost earning capacity to ensure that all damages are taken into account.
