Here in California, pedestrian claims often differ from regular car wreck claims in a number of ways. The first way is that the insurance company is always going to blame you and say that you were at fault. If they don’t say it was your fault, they will say you were partially at fault. They will do whatever they can to avoid responsibility. With car crash cases, you know when someone ran a red light, or rear-ended somebody, or they ran a stop light. With a pedestrian, because it isn’t as clear, they can always try and place the blame on you.

It is very critical in these types of cases that you get legal representation right away because it’s very important to go out and get witness statements, perhaps take measurements of skid marks, and other evidence that there is along the roadway.
