Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Lake Forest
Quality & Excellence On Your Side
Thousands of people are killed in pedestrian-vehicle accidents every year. At the Law Offices of J. Christian Conrad APC, our dedicated team represents clients who have suffered injuries, or clients who are survivors of a pedestrian killed in a road accident as a result of the reckless or negligent driving of another motorist.
Although pedestrians and drivers are both bestowed with the duty to exercise ordinary care, the amount of care required by the driver is greater than that of the pedestrian, since the driver is driving a vehicle capable of inflicting severe injury or death.
As a general rule, a motorist has the duty of having his or her vehicle under sufficient control to enable him to avoid injury to any pedestrians. Automobile drivers have no assumption that the road is clear, and must be constantly on the look out for pedestrians. Even if the driver has the right of way, they are required to stay vigilant and drive with care.
