California law makes it clear that pedestrians and bicyclists have an equally valid right to use public roadways as do operators of motor vehicles. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to pay adequate attention to people walking or bicycling along the roadside, crossing at crosswalks, or moving about within parking lots. As a result, many are injured or even killed in preventable collisions, and very rarely did they ever see it coming or have a chance to react. In San Diego and North County, these kinds of incidents are particularly common, and it is not uncommon for the victims to be children on their way to school.
Pedestrian accident attorney Ronald B. Laba has a long track record of fighting in court for the rights of pedestrian accident victims, and he knows the grounds upon which a legitimate negligent driver or wrongful death suit must be founded. Ron Laba also understands the reasons why pedestrians are struck and the devastating impact a pedestrian or bicycle accident can have in a person’s life. Many times, pedestrian accident victims are left with shattered bones, internal organ damage, concussions, traumatic brain injury, and other life-altering injuries. It is only right that they should be compensated for financial loss, pain and suffering, and psychological trauma inflicted upon them through no fault of their own.

Common Locations for Pedestrian Accidents
Where do pedestrian accidents usually occur in San Diego? On the one hand, they can happen anywhere you happen to be walking, running, or cycling. You might be strolling along the highway when suddenly an intoxicated driver loses control of the vehicle and slams into you. Or, while walking through a downtown parking lot, a texting driver might run into you, being distracted by his phone. It could also happen that, as you are obeying pedestrian crossing laws at a cross-walk, a reckless driver ignores the signal and strikes you mid-way through the intersection.
While such accidents can and do occur anywhere, there are still some locations where they are especially common, including:
- Parking lots and parking garages
- Intersections and crosswalks
- Along residential streets
- In driveways, both commercial and residential
- Anywhere that large crowds typically gather, such as sports complexes and concert halls
