Southern California Lawyers Urge Pedestrian Safety

People consult trial lawyers like us because they or someone they love has been injured, often because of the carelessness of another person. When pedestrians are hit by automobiles, the injuries are often catastrophic. So, it is worth reminding the public of some basic safety rules, designed to protect pedestrians from injury:

  1. If you have the option, use the sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk and you must walk in the roadway, do so facing traffic so that you can monitor the approach of oncoming cars.

  2. Dress to be seen. During the day, light and/or bright colors make it easier for drivers to see you. If you walk at night, you should use reflective material to reflect the headlights of oncoming cars.

  3. Cross only at traffic signals or marked crosswalks and never begin to cross until you are sure that there is no traffic or that cars coming in both directions see you and are going to stop. This requires that you look both ways before stepping into the street.

We are happy to represent you in the event of an injury. But, we would prefer that you be safe and avoid the need for a lawsuit. For more information on pedestrian safety, go to
