San Francisco Pedestrian Accident Attorney

free consultation

The majority of pedestrian accidents are caused by vehicles at pedestrian crosswalks or walkways. A pedestrian could be injured by an impaired, unlicensed, or even an inexperienced driver. These injuries could range from mild to critical and could possibly be fatal. All pedestrians obeying traffic laws should have the right to travel freely and safely. Vehicles do not have the right to force you off the road or cause you physical harm. They can be held civilly liable, if proven negligent, and owe you compensation for undue pain, suffering, and medical bills.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a pedestrian in San Francisco, through no fault of your own, contact JML Law at 415-692-3462 or visit our website at www.jmllaw.com to request a free consultation of your case. Our attorneys are experienced in pedestrian accident laws and will build you the best case possible to provide you with the maximum settlement you are entitled to under the law.

  5. Over 5,000 pedestrians are killed annually throughout the country

Insurance companies or liable parties may try to offer unsubstantial settlements that are unreasonable. Let our expert attorneys in San Francisco review your case and inform you of all possible compensation you are owed. Possible liability may not only be at the fault of the driver but may also be to a property owner who failed to maintain pedestrian signs or proper maintenance of sidewalks, cross ways, or parking lots.

Do not hesitate to call us or be bullied into a quick and puny settlement. We handle cases on a contingency basis. If we do not win, you owe us nothing. Let us fight on your behalf.
