We are a Bay Area Pedestrian Accident Law Firm, devoted to accident victims and their relatives, with over a quarter century of experience.
Pedestrians are completely vulnerable and therefore suffer a vastly disproportionate amount of severe injuries and wrongful death when an accident involving a motor vehicle occurs. Approximately 4,735 pedestrians were killed (17% of all traffic fatalities), and 66,000 pedestrians suffered injuries, in U.S. traffic accidents in 2013, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Pedestrian accidents raise unique issues, and may involve pedestrians or joggers who are struck in a crosswalk, sideswiped by a motor vehicle, hit while in a parking lot, struck while exiting a bus or car, or otherwise injured or killed by a driver who is at fault. All too often, drivers are inattentive to the presence of pedestrians and don't sufficiently look in the direction their car is traveling.
When a pedestrian accident occurs, the pedestrian has the same right to seek financial compensation as any motorist. Just like other accidents involving motor vehicles, it is important to hire a sophisticated and knowledgeable attorney familiar with the unique issues involved in pedestrian accidents and pedestrian injuries, who will conduct a prompt investigation of the accident and your injuries, who has credibility with auto insurance companies, and who will work tirelessly to obtain for you the compensation to which you are entitled.
Pedestrian injuries can also arise from causes other than collisions with motor vehicles, such as hazards created by the defective or dangerous condition of sidewalks or parking lots. Property owners, municipalities, or other third parties may be held liable if they were negligent.
If you or a loved one has been in a pedestrian accident, it is extremely important to talk to a qualified pedestrian accident attorney immediately. If you wait too long to speak with a lawyer, evidence in your case may be lost, witnesses may disappear, and insurance companies may take advantage of you. Once we accept your pedestrian accident injury claim, an investigation is immediately begun and expeditious action is taken to secure and preserve evidence relevant to your claim.
The Law Office Of Daniel H. Rose, which handles exclusively personal injury and wrongful death claims, has a distinguished reputation for obtaining for its clients the compensation and accountability they rightfully deserve. An injured pedestrian can recover all of the same types of damages that someone injured in a car accident or bicycle accident would be entitled to recover, including past and future medical expenses, lost earnings and earning potential, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, loss of parental or spousal financial support, loss of spousal relations, property damage, incidental expenses, and other types of physical, economic, and sometimes even punitive damages that result from the accident. We work extremely hard to maximize your damage recovery, and endeavor to relieve you of as much burden and hassle as possible so you may put all of your energy towards healing.
Many pedestrian accident victims think that they can resolve their injury claim directly with the other party's insurance company rather than hire a pedestrian accident lawyer. Most who try to do this on their own end up regretting doing so. When an injured pedestrian is not represented by a qualified pedestrian accident attorney, the insurance company, which is in the business of paying out as little as possible, will usually lead the victim to believe they will be dealt with fairly and adequately compensated. However, the reality is that insurance companies will usually take advantage of the unrepresented party and end up offering them a grossly insufficient settlement amount. Do not fall for this tactic, and do not allow the insurance company to take a recorded statement from you or induce you to sign any papers or see their doctors. Turn over all matters very early to a Bay Area personal injury lawyer who will zealously protect your interests.
We collect no fees or expenses unless we recover damages for you by way of settlement or verdict.

Last year my sister was nearly killed while walking through a crosswalk in the city on her way to work. ... We were referred to Dan via word of mouth. We spent a while checking around the Internet and soon knew we had found the right person. ... Dan was more than fantastic and more then we could have expected from an attorney. I am still shocked at how quickly he responds to questions and emails even while on vacation. Dan is an EXPERT in personal injury and leaves no stone unturned when it comes to gathering data about the case. Dan treated us like we were his own family member he was representing. I HIGHLY recommend Dan!!!!!!
I was hit by a car while crossing a crosswalk and had to get surgery done. ... A quick google search for "pedestrian accident lawyer" brought Dan's name up. And, all I can say is, it's been smooth sailing since. ... Long story short, the case was settled in just a few months, and very well too. ... Hopefully, you'll never be in a situation where you'd need an accident lawyer, but if you do, then Dan is definitely your man.
