Frequently asked questions from pedestrians involved in accidents

As a pedestrian, being involved in a car accident can be very traumatic. As the more vulnerable person in the equation, you could have been the victim of very serious injuries. Of course, you will feel some anger toward the person in the car that caused such damages, and unsurprisingly, you may want to claim damages.

Liability for pedestrians on the interstate highway

In a usual car accident involving a pedestrian, the law tends to side with the pedestrian since they have less ability to cause damage and are more likely to be hurt. However, when there is a car accident involving a pedestrian that takes place on an interstate highway, things become a little more complicated. This is because pedestrians have a duty to take reasonable precautions for their safety, and they have somewhat failed in this if they are on the interstate highway.

Help your children stay safe when they're playing outside

During the summer months in the Bay Area, the great weather means that everyone wants to get outside as much as possible -- especially children. If you're a parent, you're probably happy every time your kids say they want to get outside and go for a walk through the neighborhood rather than having their noses buried in an iPad. But, as all parents do, you probably worry about the safety of your children as well.

Pedestrians must exercise safety

Many individuals mistakenly believe that pedestrians always maintain the right of way when they enter a street. Unfortunately, this is a dangerous and inaccurate idea, one that costs many pedestrians their lives each year, and leaves some of those who survive an injury accident with few options to seek compensation for their injuries.

1 dies, another is severely injured in car accident on the 580

An early morning accident that occurred on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, claimed one individual's life and seriously injured another in a tragic multi-car accident near the Broadway exit of Highway 580 in Oakland. Calls reporting the fatal car crash, which later resulted in pedestrian deaths, began flooding into California Highway Patrol around 4:29 a.m., that same morning.

Can a pedestrian 'scramble' be safe?

The name alone seems worthy of an eyebrow raise. Scramble? Really? That's the term city planning engineers have assigned to crosswalks where the traffic signals are set so that all vehicles stop in all directions at the same time. The idea is that the entire intersection becomes a crosswalk. During the ensuing interval, pedestrians can cross in any direction they want – even diagonally. Scramble, indeed.
