The Problem Of Pedestrian Knockdowns

Pedestrians always end up on the losing side when they have been involved in an accident with a vehicle. And all too often, a pedestrian accident is a fatality. If your loved one has been killed, contact The Ellis Firm, APLC, and we will immediately get to work on your wrongful death claim.

Even if you do not think you have a case, contact us at 951-289-0628. Making an inquiry with an attorney will not obligate you to pursue legal action, but it may give you a different perspective and change your mind.

If a car vs. pedestrian accident or hit-and-run crash does not result in a fatality, there are often severe or catastrophic injuries such as:

  • Fractured bones
  • Head injuries
  • Skull fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Other types of life-altering injuries
