Representing Those Injured While Crossing the Street

If you were injured in a pedestrian-car accident, it is important to discuss your case with a personal injury lawyer who understands the law and has achieved successful results in pedestrian accident claims.
Attorney Noël M. Ferris has represented people injured in pedestrian accidents and the families of those who died a wrongful death while attempting to cross the street. She has obtained millions of dollars in damages for her injured clients. Please contact her law office to arrange a free initial consultation about your case.
The Dangers of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving is a common cause of pedestrian accidents. People eating, putting on make up, talking on cell phones, texting, e-mailing, or dealing with the audio system or GPS are hazards to pedestrians and other drivers. Ms. Ferris will review the police report and interview witnesses to determine whether distracted or aggressive driving played a role in the accident.
To a great degree, pedestrian accidents are about notice. Did the driver have the opportunity to notice and react to the pedestrian? Often they did, but were busy doing other things.
Please contact her law office even if you believe you were partially at fault for the accident. She may be able to recover compensation for a portion of your damages even if you were not crossing in a crosswalk on a green light.
It costs nothing to have her review your case and explain your legal options. Call 916-520-3370 or 888-351-3970 to arrange a consultation. Ms. Ferris represents people injured in pedestrian accidents and hit-and-run accidents throughout Northern California.
