Common Causes of Beverly Hills Pedestrian Accidents

Driver negligence is a significant factor in many pedestrian accidents, particularly in bustling areas like Beverly Hills, where drivers may be distracted or aggressive. When an accident is the result of negligence, the negligent driver becomes liable for the damages they cause.

Some specific types of driver negligence that contribute to pedestrian accidents include:

  • Distracted driving. In today's always-connected world, drivers often divide their attention between the road and other distractions, like smartphones, navigation systems, or entertainment screens. This split focus can lead to a failure to notice pedestrians, especially at crosswalks or in densely populated areas.
  • Speeding. Exceeding speed limits reduces a driver's ability to stop quickly when a pedestrian enters the vehicle’s path. In a place like Beverly Hills, where roads are frequently congested and pedestrian activity is high, speeding exacerbates the risk of serious accidents.
  • Ignoring traffic signs and signals. Some drivers choose to disregard traffic signs and signals that are designed to protect pedestrians. This includes running red lights, not stopping at stop signs, and ignoring pedestrian crossing signals.
  • Failure to yield right of way at crosswalks. Pedestrians have the right of way at crosswalks, but drivers sometimes ignore this rule due to impatience or not paying attention. Failing to yield can lead to dangerous situations where pedestrians are caught off guard while legally crossing the road.
  • Turning accidents. Intersections are hotspots for pedestrian accidents. Drivers making turns, especially right on red, may fail to see pedestrians crossing or misjudge their walking speed. 
  • Driving under the influence. Consumption of alcohol or drugs before driving severely impairs a driver's reaction time, judgment, and overall ability to operate a vehicle safely. Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to drivers under the influence, as their erratic driving patterns and reduced responsiveness can lead to catastrophic outcomes.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit in Beverly Hills?

Pedestrian accident injuries are often so severe that they can prevent you from doing the things you used to do before the accident, like work, play sports, or even complete daily tasks. You deserve full and fair compensation for these damages as well as other losses, but to secure them, you must take legal action before California’s statute of limitations expires. Generally, you will have two years from the date of the collision to file a lawsuit, so you should not wait to start the legal process.

Our Beverly Hills pedestrian accident attorneys can work to obtain compensation for economic and non-economic damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income and earning potential

If you were struck by a negligent driver, you should always explore your options for recovering compensation, even if you were jaywalking at the time of the collision. Call (310) 273-1230 or contact us online today!
