According to the Centers for Disease Control, every 8 minutes a pedestrian is injured in a traffic accident in the U.S. In California as elsewhere, many pedestrians are killed in such incidents as well.
The attorneys at Ziff & Cohn are dedicated to helping injured pedestrians get compensation for their medical bills, any wages lost as a result of their accident, their pain and suffering, and more. If you were injured in an accident, whether the driver involved was drunk, driving too fast, or distracted, or failed to yield as required by law, you should not have to bear the burden of that driver's negligence. This is particularly true if you suffered a severe impairment, such as a spinal cord injury or a brain injury. If the driver failed to act as a reasonable person would have under the circumstances, he or she should be held responsible for the resulting harm.
To ensure that you get full compensation for your injuries, it is extremely important that you consult an experienced California personal injury attorney before you make any statements to insurance company representatives or to attorneys representing anyone else involved. Equally important is the need for a thorough investigation of the accident site--the kind of investigation that our firm always performs on our clients' behalf.
In all pedestrian accident cases, the attorneys at Ziff & Cohn begin with a thorough investigation and build on its results through meticulous preparation and zealous advocacy.
Our initial consultation is FREE, and our office is conveniently located on El Camino Real in Los Altos, California.
