As you cross the street using a marked or unmarked crosswalk, you expect to be safe from harm. Pedestrians are often involved in serious accidents. Each year, the number of pedestrian fatalities remains in the thousands.
Rest assured, if you’re injured as a pedestrian, you have the attorneys at Jolly Berry Law on your side. Working on each case as a team, we help individuals, like you, receive the compensation they deserve to help them heal.
Pedestrian Accident Injuries Are Often the Most Severe
Drivers of vehicles have a higher duty of care because they are more protected and have the potential to inflict serious injury and damage to pedestrians. Pedestrians don’t have any protection against direct impact from vehicles in their path. Because of the lack of protection, these accidents are often much more severe.
Some of the most common injuries may include:
- Severe bone breaks and dislocations
- Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
- Internal bleeding and punctured organs
- Severe nerve damage
The severity of an injury will depend on many factors out of the pedestrian’s control, including the speed of impact. But, injuries of any kind may result in medical bills, lost wages, and financial strain. To receive the compensation you deserve, consider consulting professional and dedicated attorneys.
Liability in California
California offers pedestrians several laws written to protect them. According to the California Vehicle Code, drivers are required to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians using crosswalks or intersections. If a driver fails to yield, is found to be distracted, speeding excessively, or driving under the influence, they will be held liable for your injuries.
At Jolly Berry Law, experienced attorneys can evaluate your case, advocating on your behalf. We protect your rights, helping you receive the results you deserve.

“We were in a bad situation and things seemed as if there was no hope. If you’ve ever had that feeling of hopelessness you know what I’m taking about. We spoke to Leah about our case while she took copious notes and asked us a lot of questions – uncomfortable ones. All the while she kept her professional composure and gave us the honest to God truth…..truth about our options and how things were going to go down depending on what happens. It was a tough day. As we progressed into the process we were introduced to Kevin who supported Leah’s strategy and provided more insight. Together they showed compassion and empathy for our situation. Right from the get go we knew Leah and Kevin’s professionalism and extensive knowledge in trial was going to benefit us. They knew people, best strategy and possible outlook. Things were looking much better. We decided our best option was to go to trial and it was a good decision. Watching Leah and Kevin in action picking out the jury, lining up the witness stand and re-strategizing after objections was an amazing experience. We won 12-0 in our favor. If you are ever in a situation that you need an attorney you need to call Leah and Kevin – you won’t regret it. “
