A pedestrian accident in San Francisco or anywhere in California is often caused by driver inattention and outright negligence. Most commonly, motorists fail to yield to pedestrians in crowded downtown areas, where heavy bus, car, and foot traffic interact. This can lead to a San Francisco vehicle and pedestrian collision.
At The Cartwright Law Firm, we work with accident investigators and eyewitness testimony to reconstruct what happened and why. By measuring skid marks and analyzing the placement of debris, an accident reconstruction expert can often determine how fast a car was traveling, whether a light was red, yellow, or green, and when a driver provided testimony that contradicts the available facts and data. Since most drivers deny seeing pedestrians, collecting evidence and determining exactly what happened is an essential part of a case. Our attorneys have the investigative resources and experience needed to hold negligent drivers financially liable when they cause a San Francisco pedestrian injury or death.
