San Francisco Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Offering sensitive legal representation to injured pedestrians

Pedestrian accidents occur at an alarming rate in California. There were more than 12,000 pedestrian collisions resulting in injuries and more than 600 fatal pedestrian accidents in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol. Many of these accidents occurred in the Bay Area.

The attorneys at the Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel represent pedestrians who have been injured because of the negligence of others, including drivers and property owners. We understand how devastating a pedestrian accident can be, and we are dedicated to providing compassionate service to you and your loved ones while aggressively protecting your rights.

The father-daughter team of Michael and Michelle Mandel has more than 50 years of combined legal experience and is highly skilled at litigation, allowing our firm to offer comprehensive, high quality legal service to injured pedestrians. Our Bay Area lawyers assist victims injured because of all types of driver negligence, including:

  • Speeding
  • Running a red light
  • Failure to observe pedestrian right of way
  • Running through a crosswalk
  • Sideswiping a pedestrian
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while talking or texting on a cell phone
  • Failure to obey traffic signals

Drivers owe a special duty of care to child pedestrians, who are less likely to use caution at crosswalks or while playing in or near streets. Drivers must watch out for children chasing balls or dashing out between cars.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates 13,000 children were injured in pedestrian accidents and nearly 250 were killed in 2009.
