Pedestrian Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyer
Anaheim California has one of the highest rates of pedestrian injury and incidence of wrongful death in Orange County. More than half of the fatal accidents in Anaheim involve a pedestrian, many of which are hit-and-run drivers. Anaheim is home to some of the largest entertainment and sports facilities in California, in fact, the world. The pedestrian traffic around attractions such as Disneyland and its associated properties is heavy year around. Major professional sports attractions in Anaheim include the “Angels” major league baseball team, as well as the Anaheim “Ducks” hockey team, both world champions in their respective sports. Anaheim pedestrian injuries and fatal accidents require an attorney with legal skill and expertise.
Anaheim is Ringed by Interstate 5 to the west, The Riverside Freeway (91) to the north, and the Orange Freeway (57) on the east. Major pedestrian corridors exist along La Palma, and surrounding the sports and entertainment venues such as Angel Stadium and the Honda Center. The weather is beautiful all year, and the combination of the warm sunshine, fun activities and California’s “outside” lifestyle provide ample opportunity for pedestrians to come into contact with motor vehicle traffic. Unfortunately, the human body is no match for a vehicle in motion, and severe injuries are often the result.
Injuries in Anaheim Pedestrian Accidents
The injuries associated with Anaheim pedestrian accidents cover a wide range from broken bones, cuts and contusions to severe injuries such as open and closed head trauma, and neck and spine injuries that result in permanent paralysis. Fractures to the hips, pelvis and shoulders are common due to the nature of impact with the vehicle. In some cases, such as those involving driving under the influence (DUI) or distracted driving, the impacts are much more severe and result in fatal injuries leading to wrongful death actions.
Even a seemingly minor impact between a car and a pedestrian in a parking lot or crosswalk can lead to significant injury. Broken arms and legs can prevent the injured victim from being able to work resulting in lost wages. In many cases physical or occupational therapy is required in order to recover full range of motion in areas that have been injured in the accident.
