How Our Torrance Pedestrian Accident Law Firm Can Help

Our team of injury lawyers specializes in providing comprehensive assistance to individuals involved in a pedestrian accident. Here’s how our firm can help you navigate the aftermath of such an incident:

  1. Help with Medical Bills: Medical expenses following a pedestrian accident can quickly accumulate, including hospital bills, doctor’s visits, medication costs, rehabilitation, and more. We negotiate with insurance companies and opposing parties to cover the current and future medical treatment costs so you can focus on your recovery without worrying about financial burdens.
  2. Recovering Lost Wages: Pedestrian accidents can result in serious injuries that may require time away from work for recovery. We work diligently to help you recover compensation for the income you’ve lost due to being unable to work during your recovery period. This may include past and future lost wages and any lost earning capacity if your injuries have long-term effects on your ability to work.
  3. Property Damage: In addition to personal injuries, pedestrian accidents can also result in damage to personal property, such as clothing, electronic devices, or other belongings. Our firm assists you in documenting and recovering compensation for any property damage resulting from the accident, ensuring that you are fully reimbursed for your losses.
  4. Emotional Recovery: Our compassionate legal team understands the emotional toll that victims of a pedestrian accident face. We provide support and guidance throughout the legal process, offering resources and referrals to mental health professionals if needed. We seek compensation for emotional distress, pain, and suffering as part of your overall claim, acknowledging the non-economic damages you’ve endured due to the accident.

We are committed to advocating for your rights and helping you secure the compensation you deserve. Our experienced personal injury lawyers have the knowledge and expertise to handle all aspects of your claim, allowing you to focus on your recovery.

For example, we secured our client a $1,500,000 settlement in San Diego when the defendant was driving and not paying attention when they struck our client in a crosswalk causing a low back injury that required surgery.

Important Initial Advice Following A Pedestrian Accident 

Here’s a step-by-step guide for what to do after a pedestrian accident in Torrance:

  1. Assess Your Safety: Ensure you and anyone involved in the accident are safe from further harm. Move to a safe location if possible.
  2. Check for Injuries: If anyone is injured, call emergency services immediately. Even seemingly minor injuries should be examined by medical professionals.
  3. Call Emergency Services: Dial 911 to report the accident. Provide them with your location and any relevant details about the incident.
  4. Exchange Information: Exchange contact and insurance information with the driver involved in the accident. This includes their name, phone number, address, license plate number, and insurance details.
  5. Document the Scene: If you can do so safely, take photos of the accident scene, including any vehicle damage, injuries, road conditions, and traffic signs or signals. This documentation may be crucial for insurance claims or legal proceedings.
  6. Gather Witness Information: If there are witnesses to the accident, obtain their names and contact information. Their statements could be valuable in determining what happened.
  7. Report the Accident: Notify your insurance company about the accident immediately. Provide them with all the details you’ve gathered, including the police report number if one was filed.
  8. Seek Medical Attention: Even if you don’t believe you’re seriously injured, seeking medical attention is essential. Some injuries, such as concussions or internal bleeding, may not be immediately apparent but can have severe consequences if left untreated.
  9. Keep Records: Keep detailed records of all medical treatments related to the accident, including doctor visits, prescriptions, and any other expenses incurred due to your injuries.
  10. Consult with Legal Counsel: Consult with a pedestrian accident lawyer in Torrance from our firm so we can advise you on your rights and options for seeking compensation for your injuries and other losses.

Deadlines For Filing An Accident Claim

California law mandates a two-year statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim related to injuries from car accidents. This deadline is applicable regardless of whether you were in a vehicle, riding a bicycle, walking as a pedestrian, or on a motorcycle at the time of the accident.

To navigate these deadlines effectively and ensure you don’t miss out on your chance for justice, reach out to us as soon as possible. Our team is ready to guide you through every step of the process, ensuring no detail is overlooked.

What Evidence Is Needed To File An Accident Claim? 

After a pedestrian accident, gathering evidence quickly is crucial for building a solid case for accident injuries. Here’s what you should aim to collect if you’ve been hit by a car in a pedestrian accident: 

  • Police Documentation: Always report the incident to the police immediately. The official report serves as an essential document detailing the accident.
  • Medical Records: Seek medical attention immediately, even if injuries initially seem minor. Keep all records and receipts related to your treatment; they are vital for proving injury claims.
  • Eyewitness Statements: If there were any witnesses to the accident, their accounts could be precious. Try to get their contact information so they can provide statements later on.
  • Photo/Video Evidence: Pictures or videos of the scene right after the accident can offer compelling proof of the circumstances and damages involved. Capture different angles, if possible, including street signs, traffic signals, and vehicle positions.
  • Surveillance Footage: Check for nearby security cameras that may have recorded the accident, or dashcam footage from eyewitnesses.
  • Vehicle Damage Reports: Document any damage to vehicles involved, which can help reconstruct the accident’s dynamics.
  • Personal Diary/Notes: Daily log your injuries’ progression and how they affect your life, including work missed and activities you can no longer enjoy.

At Feher Law, we understand that the thought of gathering evidence can feel overwhelming after an accident, especially when you’re injured and trying to recover. That’s precisely where we step in—to lift this burden off your shoulders and gather the evidence on your behalf. 

What Can I Expect to Pay?

When it comes to costs, we believe in transparency and fairness. That’s why we operate on a contingency fee basis for pedestrian accident cases. Simply put, this means you won’t pay any upfront fees. Our payment is contingent upon winning your case; you owe us nothing if we don’t secure compensation.

It aligns our interests with yours – we are fully invested in achieving the best possible outcome for your case because our success directly depends on your success.

In a pedestrian accident, the insurance claim process typically begins by reporting the incident to the responsible party's insurance company. This involves providing details about the accident, injuries, and damages. The insurer then conducts an investigation to determine liability.

If liability is established, the injured pedestrian may receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.

If a fair settlement cannot be reached, legal action may be pursued. Consulting with a personal injury attorney is advisable to navigate the complexities of the insurance claim process and ensure your rights are protected.

Certainly, engaging a pedestrian accident law firm can significantly impact your case. Their expertise ensures thorough investigation, proper identification of liability, and effective representation. This increases the likelihood of obtaining fair compensation for injuries and damages.

After a pedestrian accident, prioritize your safety and seek medical attention for any injuries. If possible, document the scene by taking photos and obtaining witness information, and also report the incident to law enforcement.

Be sure to also preserve any evidence, such as clothing or footwear, and contact your insurance company cautiously.

No matter what, consulting with a pedestrian accident attorney promptly is important to assess liability, protect your rights, and pursue appropriate compensation for injuries and damages.

Contingency fees function on a "no win, no fee" basis. In essence, clients only pay their attorney if the case results in success.

The attorney's fee is contingent upon a percentage of the compensation received, typically derived from damages awarded during legal proceedings. This arrangement mitigates financial risk for clients, ensuring fees are linked to the positive resolution of the lawsuit.

Pedestrian accidents occur due to various factors, often involving a combination of human error, environmental conditions, and vehicle-related factors:

  • Distracted Driving: One of the leading causes of pedestrian accidents is drivers being distracted by texting, talking on the phone, eating, or adjusting the radio while behind the wheel. When negligent drivers are not paying attention to the road, they may fail to notice pedestrians crossing or walking along the roadway, causing many pedestrian accidents. 
  • Speeding: Excessive speeding reduces a driver's reaction time and increases the severity of collisions, making it difficult for drivers to stop in time to avoid hitting pedestrians, especially in areas with high foot traffic, such as crosswalks or intersections.
  • Failure to Yield: This may occur due to driver negligence, aggressive driving behavior, or lack of awareness of traffic laws.
  • Poor Visibility: Nighttime, inclement weather, or poorly lit areas, can increase the risk of pedestrian accidents as drivers may have difficulty seeing pedestrians or judging their distance and speed.
  • Pedestrian Negligence: Pedestrians also contribute to accidents by engaging in risky behaviors such as jaywalking, crossing outside designated crosswalks, or disregarding traffic signals. These actions can catch drivers off guard and lead to collisions.
  • Intoxication: Both drivers and pedestrians impaired by alcohol or drugs are at a significantly higher risk of being involved in accidents. Impaired individuals may have impaired judgment, reduced coordination, and slower reaction times, making it more likely for accidents to occur.
  • Driver Inattention or Fatigue: Inattentive or fatigued drivers may fail to observe pedestrians in their vicinity or may react slowly to changing road conditions, increasing the likelihood of accidents.
  • Vehicle Blind Spots: Large vehicles such as trucks and buses have significant blind spots where pedestrians may be obscured from the driver's view. Failure to check blind spots before turning or changing lanes can result in collisions with pedestrians.
  • Poor Road Conditions: Hazards such as potholes, uneven sidewalks, inadequate signage, or poorly maintained crosswalks can create dangerous pedestrian conditions, increasing the risk of accidents.


Pedestrian accidents can lead to a wide range of injuries, varying in severity from minor bruises to life-altering conditions:

  • Fractures: Pedestrians are susceptible to fractures, including broken bones in the legs, arms, hips, and wrists, often resulting from the impact of a collision with a vehicle or the ground.
  • Head Injuries: Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) such as concussions or contusions are common in pedestrian accidents, particularly if the pedestrian's head strikes the vehicle or pavement. This is what is considered a catastrophic injury. 
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The force of a collision can cause severe spinal cord injuries, leading to paralysis, loss of sensation, or impaired mobility. These injuries may result in long-term disabilities.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Pedestrians may suffer from soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, or tears to muscles, ligaments, or tendons, often causing pain, swelling, and limited range of motion.
  • Internal Injuries: Blunt force trauma from a pedestrian accident can cause internal injuries such as organ damage, internal bleeding, or punctured lungs, which may not be immediately apparent but can be life-threatening if left untreated.
  • Road Rash: When pedestrians are thrown or dragged along the ground during an accident, they may suffer from road rash, a painful skin abrasion caused by friction with the pavement.
  • Psychological Trauma: Pedestrian accidents can also result in psychological injuries such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, or depression, stemming from the emotional trauma of the accident.
  • Facial Injuries: Facial injuries, including lacerations, fractures, or dental injuries, are common in pedestrian accidents, often caused by impact on the vehicle or the ground.
  • Crush Injuries: Pedestrians trapped beneath or between vehicles may suffer crush injuries, leading to severe tissue damage, fractures, or even amputation of limbs.
  • Wrongful Death: In the most tragic cases, pedestrian accidents can result in fatalities due to the severity of injuries sustained. Families may pursue wrongful death claims to seek justice and compensation for their loss.
