Personal Injury Attorney Los Angeles: Securing Compensation for Auto vs Pedestrain Collision
At Fassonaki Law Firm, P.C., a Los Angeles personal injury law firm, we recently represented a client, a pedestrian, who was legally working in the street at an industry event when he was struck by a car while executing a U-turn. Our client was severely injured.
Our legal team at Fassonaki Law Firm P.C. investigated the details of the accident and collected all the relevant evidence. In this case, the auto driver was engaged in dangerous and reckless behavior that put others at risk under California law and violated California Vehicle Code § 22106 and § 20001.
According to California Vehicle Code § 22106, no person shall start a vehicle that is stopped, standing, or parked on a highway, nor shall any person back a vehicle on a highway until such movement can be made with reasonable safety, while the Vehicle Code § 20001 states that the driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to a person, other than himself or herself, or in the death of a person shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident and shall provide certain information to the injured party or law enforcement.
It was our team's effort and commitment that led us to a great victory, the auto driver was at fault for the accident under California law and accepted liability for the loss. Our client received the due compensation for his bodily injuries, including economic and non-economic damages.
