Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
Whether jogging, walking, running, or playing, you or a family member could be involved in a serious accident. Still, pedestrians have the right to travel on sidewalks and intersections without fear of an accident caused by a negligent driver, and dangerous drivers must be held liable for any injuries or damage that they cause due to their negligence.
At Sweeney, Sweeney & Sweeney, APC, we represent pedestrians injured by motorists who fail to:
- Yield right of way
- Stop at a crosswalk
- Come to a complete stop at a stop sign
- Stop before turning right on red at an intersection
- Travel too fast down neighborhood streets
Quick Facts about Pedestrian Accidents
Lacking any protection whatsoever, a pedestrian is completely vulnerable to serious injuries when struck by a moving vehicle. In fact, more than 110,000 pedestrians are injured every year in the United States, and almost 60,000 pedestrians are killed.
People of all ages are affected by these devastating collisions, but statistics show that school-age children and the elderly are the most vulnerable.
Even a relatively slow-moving vehicle can cause fractures and other major injuries to a pedestrian due to the momentum of the vehicle's mass and the strength of the vehicle's surface. Leg fractures are particularly common due to the position of car bumpers at the moment of impact.
Pedestrian accidents also commonly result in severe injuries such as:
- Head trauma
- Brain injury
- Muscular injury
- Pain and suffering
Our team of pedestrian accident lawyers understands that after enduring such trauma, the goal is to get your medical bills paid, make sure you do not suffer financially as a result of lost wages, and make sure the insurance company will pay for future treatment relating to your injury, as well as your pain and suffering.

Let an experienced Temecula pedestrian accident attorney from Sweeney, Sweeney & Sweeney, APC discuss your situation thoroughly and go over the options available to you, as well as work with insurance companies and other parties involved in your case to make sure all of your needs are handled quickly and efficiently.
Should I provide a recorded statement to the insurance company?
It is our strong recommendation that this not be done without legal representation so as not to jeopardize your claim. The reality is that insurance claims adjusters are skilled at asking questions that are designed to result in the reduction or denial of your claim. Insurance companies are businesses, and they are in business to make money. Their lawyers often try to use recorded statements in order to minimize or deny the value of accident claims. You need us to help you.
Should I inform the other party's insurance company about the accident?
To pursue the claim, the other party’s insurance company needs to be contacted. However, the other party's insurer — and likely your insurer — may take something that you said and manipulate your statement in order to minimize or altogether deny your accident claim. Again, contact us as soon as possible after your accident, as we can handle any further communication with the insurance companies to ensure no misunderstandings occur and you claim is not jeopardized. Also, if the other party's insurer contacts you for information, you are not obliged to make any statements. Instead, refer the insurer to your attorney.
Should I inform my insurance company that I was involved in a crash?
Yes. Waiting to notify your insurer could result in your accident not being covered. However, when you contact the insurance company, provide only the facts of the case and avoid making any statements about who was at fault. You should contact a personal injury lawyer before making any more statements to the insurance company.
