Jaywalking Accident Attorneys

Many people feel that if they are outside a crosswalk and struck by a motor vehicle, then they are automatically at fault and cannot recover compensation for their injuries. This is not true.

Even if you were injured while jaywalking or jogging at night, you may be entitled to compensation for medical treatment, lost wages or other expenses. You can also still pursue a wrongful death lawsuit if a loved one dies as a result of a jaywalking accident in San Mateo. California is a pure comparative fault state, which means that you can obtain compensation as long as a percentage of blame can be assigned to the driver.

At Galine, Frye & Fitting, we know how to uncover all the facts related to these types of pedestrian accidents. There is often more to these situations than meets the eye. If you have questions about your rights and options, we urge you to contact us today by calling 650-345-8484 or e-mailing us so one of our thorough attorneys can assess your situation during a free consultation.

Detailed Investigation in Every Pedestrian Accident Case

Pedestrian accidents do not just happen in urban settings during rush hour. They can happen on neighborhood streets and small roads. Drivers are sometimes distracted and fail to see someone checking his or her mailbox or walking a dog. We will investigate every detail of your accident as soon as we begin working on your case. Our goal is to preserve vital evidence that can help prove liability.

Additionally, we hire accident reconstruction experts to help show a motorist had plenty of opportunity to see the victim or what other factors may have contributed to an accident, such as poor lighting or road signs. We also use these professionals to testify at trial, if litigation becomes necessary.

We will handle all of the insurance issues relevant to your claim, including dealing with your own insurance carrier. Our firm is composed of compassionate advocates who stand ready to tirelessly work on your behalf.

    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.
