Fresno Personal Injury Attorney


California, with its millions of cars on the road every day, is among the top four states in the US for fatal pedestrian accidents. Every year, thousands of people are injured and killed here when hit by cars while on foot. Pedestrian accidents include accidents involving any type of motor vehicle, including motorcycles, trucks, buses, and trains or light rail cars.

Injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident can be catastrophic. They can range from broken bones to spinal injuries and brain damage, or result in the death of the pedestrian. They can necessitate long-term medical care and rehabilitation, and as with any other catastrophic injury, can result in lost wages or even the inability to return to gainful employment.

We handle all types of motor vehicle-pedestrian accidents, including

  • Pedestrians injured while legally walking across the street
  • Pedestrians hit by a car while changing a tire, including situations where the passing motorist hit the pedestrian’s parked car
  • Pedestrians injured when a driver failed to stop while turning right at a red light or failed to see the pedestrian in the crosswalk before turning

Because the defendants in pedestrian accident cases are usually large insurance companies and corporations with enormous financial resources, you need an attorney who cannot be intimidated. You need an attorney who will fight aggressively on your behalf. You need an experienced attorney who will not make mistakes in preparing your claim, during negotiations, or in trial that could reduce the amount of compensation you receive. You need Gerald Schwab.
