At Law Offices of Frank M. Nunes Inc, our pedestrian accident attorneys in Fresno understand how devastating these collisions can be for our clients, as their injuries are often catastrophic and can include Traumatic Brain Injuries, spine and neck injuries, and even paralysis.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, last year pedestrian accident deaths throughout the country reached a thirty-year high, killing nearly 6,300 people and accounting for 17% of all traffic fatalities.
That total is the equivalent of one person being killed on foot every 88 minutes across the U.S.
Unfortunately, California has suffered its own record numbers, including last year when 972 pedestrians were killed throughout the state. Thousands of others were left severely and even permanently injured after negligent drivers collided with these individuals while they were walking on sidewalks, crosswalks, and even jogging in their very own neighborhoods.
For some, their injuries are a constant reminder of the crash, and even for those who can fully heal, the emotional distress they endure going forward can be life-changing.
Our pedestrian accident lawyers in Fresno County, Kings County, Kern County, Madera County, Merced County, and Tulare County can help shift your focus to your physical and emotional well-being while we pursue the liable party for your complete financial recovery.
When negligence is a factor, pedestrian accidents can happen anywhere without warning.
One of the main causes of these often-tragic accidents is distracted driving.
Drivers that are not completely focused on the task of driving, whether they are texting, talking to passengers, reaching for a dropped object, or tending to children or pets, can hit a pedestrian crossing the street, entering their car, or even safely using a crosswalk.
Other common causes of pedestrian accidents in Fresno may include:
Getting hit by a car, truck, or SUV can change our clients’ lives the moment the collision occurs and for months, years, or even permanently after.
If you have been hurt in a pedestrian accident, contact our personal injury attorneys in Fresno today to learn more about how we can pursue the negligent driver for the financial compensation you need to get your life back on track.
The Centers for Disease Control recorded that last year alone, nearly 130,000 pedestrians across the country were treated in emergency departments for non-fatal crash-related injuries.
The most common types of pedestrian accident injuries were:

When someone is injured in a pedestrian accident, their recovery can take months or even years.
While some may leave the scene of the collision with a broken limb, others can suffer catastrophic injuries that are not as easy to overcome.
Each of our client’s injuries will dictate the types of financial compensation they may be eligible to pursue after a pedestrian accident in Fresno.
That may include:
If you have been hurt in a pedestrian accident, our personal injury attorneys in Fresno will review your case for free during a confidential consultation, so you know what to expect when pursuing a claim against the negligent party.
To prove your loved one’s fatal accident is eligible to pursue a wrongful death claim, we must be able to prove the driver who hit him or her was negligently operating their vehicle.
We must also prove that the result of your loved one’s death led to financial damages, which could include funeral and burial expenses, loss of future income he or she would have contributed to the household, and the loss of love and care they provided through their relationships with the survivors, which could be a spouse, children, or even their parents.

Nunes Inc today to learn how we can help you get through this difficult time by pursuing the financial compensation you are entitled to from the negligent party.

I have worked with a number of attorneys over my 73 years. When I found myself a victim of a rear end auto accident and with Insurance Companies giving me the good old run around treatment, I knew I needed help. Dreading to talk with one of the attorneys I used in the past because I deemed them as big a problem as I was encountering, I decided to look for a new face to represent me. I found Frank Nunes and his staff of professionals, from the moment I met and counseled with them they helped me get my life back on track both physically and legally. If I ever need a counselor for any legal matter in the future, I will be seeking the advice and counsel of Frank Nunes and his staff of professionals.
Thanks, Frank and all your staff, for all your help both personally and legally.
