If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident, you must take legal action with the help of a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer who knows your rights. At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, we have been proudly advocating for innocently injured victims throughout Southern California since 1987! We have represented nearly 12,000 clients and have successfully recovered approximately $125 million in settlements and verdicts, which is a trial success that very few law firms can claim.
Heavy foot-traffic areas are prominent throughout Los Angeles, and drivers not only forget that pedestrians have the right of way, but they forget that pedestrians are not afforded the same protections as drivers inside vehicles. In fact, pedestrian accidents are among the leading causes of fatal roadside accidents in the entire nation, and fatalities continue to increase.
Pedestrians are most vulnerable to serious injuries, including:
We currently live in an age in which drivers are constantly barraged with technology and distractions. Although there are strict laws that forbid the use of hand-held devices while driving, many drivers still use cell phones or send texts. Fatalities can happen in a split second, and it is this type of careless behavior that our legal team sets out to correct by seeking justice for the victim.
At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, we bring something different to the table. Our entire legal team is comprised of skilled litigators who have decades of trial experience in courts throughout Southern California.
Additionally, each of our trained support staff works collaboratively with one another to strengthen your case and maximize your compensation. Because our support staff is employed with both field and personal investigators, we know how to represent our clients to the fullest extent of the law. Together, our team strives to make certain that our clients receive the most money possible.
