Escondido Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Living or working in the city means you will do quite a bit of walking to and from work, the store, the doctor, the park, school and other destinations. Spending a lot of time as a pedestrian will help you stay in shape, will keep gas and vehicle maintenance costs low, and will help the environment. It could also wind up leading to a tragic accident. Why? Pedestrians are more difficult for drivers to see, especially at night, compared to other vehicles. Pedestrians have zero protection from the elements, which means any accident with a vehicle could end up in death.

If you or a loved one has been injured while walking to work or the store you need to speak with an experienced and trusted Escondido pedestrian accident attorney about your case. Call 619-543-1789 today to schedule a consultation.
