  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia and Quadriplegia
  • Amputations
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

These kinds of injuries come at a high cost. In addition to expensive medical treatment, victims may suffer serious emotional harm and disruption to their personal and professional lives.

The good news is:

Your Pedestrian Accident Attorney Can Help You Secure Compensation

The majority of pedestrian accidents are caused by the recklessness or negligence of vehicle drivers. For example, a driver might injure a pedestrian by running a red light, failing to stop at a stop sign, or simply by being distracted. As your pedestrian accident attorney in Rancho Cucamonga, Fernando D. Vargas can help you secure compensation from the party responsible for your accident. You can rest assured he will not overlook any possible areas of compensation, but will instead work hard to maximize your compensation for all applicable damages including:

  • Medical bills, in the past and in the future
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Assistive devices and transportation
  • Renovations to home (e.g., ramps, handrails, etc.)
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Disfigurement
  • Inability to perform certain functions or activities
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium

Have You Been Accused of Causing Your Own Accident?

Pedestrians can occasionally be at fault for pedestrian accidents. For example, they might fail to obey a traffic signal, jaywalk rather than use a crosswalk, or forget to look both ways before stepping off the curb. Sometimes, pedestrians get unfairly accused of such behaviors by drivers who are trying to avoid liability. If this has happened to you, don’t worry. As your pedestrian accident attorney, Fernando D. Vargas will work hard to prove what really happened in the moments leading up to your accident, using all available evidence including police reports, eyewitness statements, medical reports, and accident reconstructions as appropriate.

Even if you did play a role in causing your own accident, Fernando D. Vargas may still be able to help. Under the legal doctrine of comparative negligence, more than one party can share liability for an accident. So if, for example, you crossed against a light and were hit by a car that was speeding, you might be able to recover partial compensation for your injuries.
