No dealing with the paperwork, the investigators, the insurance companies, the bill collectors—Sally and her team handle everything.
How can they provide this level of dedicated, personal service?
Sally and her team choose to work with hardworking individuals who have suffered serious injuries only. They work with people in need of a helping hand to get their lives back on track quickly, not those looking for a handout. It’s those people who refuse to let their accident get them down and those who maintain a positive attitude throughout the whole process that inspire Sally and her team to work their hardest.
You’ve Been Injured by a Reckless Driver. Now What?
Don’t settle for what the at-fault party or their insurance company offers you right away. In fact, it’s best if you don’t even speak with insurance adjusters—they’re NOT on your side. Anything you say to them can be used to minimize your financial recovery. The safest bet – Tell them to speak with your lawyer instead.
But you can’t take forever to choose the right Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer to represent you. You have to act fast. The longer you wait the greater the risk of losing the compensation you deserve.
Unfortunately that’s a decision you have to make while still recovering from your injuries, worrying about how you’re going to get back to work, struggling with finances, and dealing with the flood of phone calls and mountain of paperwork.
Don’t make that decision lightly though. Choosing the right lawyer for your pedestrian accident case can make the difference between getting everything you need and being left out in the cold by an uncaring and aloof attorney out for their own glory.

Pedestrian Accidents Make Los Angeles County “Most Unsafe”
According to recent pedestrian accident statistics, Los Angeles is the “most unsafe” county in the country for people on foot. It’s not surprising. Los Angeles has some of the worst traffic conditions in the country (crowded roadways, outdated infrastructure, and limited pedestrian access). Combine that with a population that eclipses that of New York City (over 10 million people) and you’re bound to have problems.
Data collected by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration shows that in 2014 there were 207 fatal pedestrian accidents in Los Angeles County. While nationwide statistics show pedestrian fatalities account for just 14% of all deadly crashes, those 207 fatal crashes make up 41% Los Angeles’ total.
And non-fatal pedestrian accidents in Los Angeles are out of hand as well. Stretch the scope of that research back in time and pedestrian accidents represent 10% of all traffic crashes in Los Angeles between 2002 and 2013 (roughly 58,000 reported collisions).
In short, pedestrians put themselves at tremendous risk every day in Los Angeles.
But the problem isn’t widespread. In fact, 25% of all the fatal accidents in LA occur in just 1% of the intersections. That means that super-dangerous roadways like South Alverado Street and Hollywood, Sunset, and Santa Monica Boulevards are host to a vast majority of the serious pedestrian accidents in Los Angeles. 343 pedestrians were struck by cars in less than 1 square mile of city streets in Westlake near MacArthur Park between 2002 and 2013.
Risk Factors for Pedestrian Accidents in Los Angeles
Speed is perhaps the leading contributing factor to not only the number of pedestrian accidents in Los Angeles but also the severity of those accidents. A pedestrian has a 25% chance of suffering a severe injury (one requiring ambulance rides, an ER visit, extended hospital stay, or surgery) if the car they are struck by is travelling under 24 miles per hour. If that car is travelling just 39 miles per hour that risk triples to 75%.
Other contributing factors to avoidable pedestrian accidents in Los Angeles include:
- Driver’s Failure to Yield
- Cars Making Improper turns
- Failure to Obey Stop and Crosswalk Signs/Signals
- Alcohol consumption
If you’ve been injured by a careless, distracted, or reckless driver, finding the right pedestrian accident lawyer in Los Angeles is essential for getting the compensation you deserve.
