PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT ATTORNEY – CHULA VISTA
Pedestrians are more vulnerable than their automobile driver counterparts. They don’t have the luxury of seatbelts, airbags or roll bars to help protect them in an accident. Even when a vehicle is driving at a low rate of speed, if it strikes a pedestrian, the damage can be extensive and even fatal. As a result, pedestrians involved in car accidents in San Diego County suffer from a multitude of injuries including:
- Bone fractures

- Face and neck injury
- Pelvic injury
- Serious brain and spinal cord injury
- Temporary or permanent disability
