PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS AND cases:
a pedestrian is ordinarily a person walking on
city streets, sidewalks, or on private property. Pedestrian
accidents relating to slip and fall's and or trip and fall's are
covered in the premises liability section of this web site.
Thousands of people
are killed each year, while walking. Pedestrian accident cases
can involve persons who are hit by cars, motorcycles, bicycles,
other motor vehicles, or even other pedestrians while walking.
In the state of
California, motor vehicles are by law supposed to yield the
right-of-way to pedestrians. Furthermore, motor vehicles are
supposed to stop while a pedestrian is walking in a designated
crosswalk. However, pedestrians have a duty of due care in that
the law will not protect them if they suddenly dart or run into
pedestrians versus motor vehicles usually result in catastrophic
injuries to the pedestrian.
The law offices of
Norman Gregory Fernandez & Associates handles most types of
pedestrian accidents. if you have suffered a pedestrian type of
accident, and are injured as a result, we always recommend
that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. If you are
able, try to get the identification of the person who hit you.
By law, if a person in a motor vehicle is involved in an
accident, they are supposed to stop an exchange identification
and insurance information. Often times pedestrians who were
injured due to being hit by a car or other motor vehicle, have
suffered such severe injuries that they are unable to obtain the
identification and our motor vehicle information of the person
that hit them. If you can, ask any bystander to call 911 for
you. We always recommend that either you or another person call
the police. It is very important for you to try to get the
police on the scene of the accident, so that they can prepare an
accident report. Furthermore, ask any bystander that may be able
to assist you, to take down the identification, and insurance
information of the person who hit you. We further recommend you
try to get the names, addresses and phone numbers of any and all
witnesses that may have seen the accident.
It is imperative
that you call our law firm, as soon as possible if you have
suffered a pedestrian type of accident. For a free consultation
call our law firm at (800) 816-1529, Ext.1.
BICYCLE accidents: Bicycle accidents are
similar to motorcycle accidents, in that the same type of
catastrophic injuries can result. Unlike motorcycle accidents,
bicycle riders are not required to carry motor vehicle
insurance. However, there are special rules relating to where
people may ride bicycles.
We highly recommend
that you read the motorcycle accident section of this web site
for information that will pertain to a bicycle accident case.
Just like in a motorcycle accident case, most bicycle accident
cases involve a negligent motorist hitting the bicyclists,
because they did not see the bicycle rider.
You can read the motorcycle
accident section of our web site by clicking here now. We
highly recommend that you follow the advice contained in that

Motor vehicle passenger cases involve
persons who are passengers in cars, buses, trucks, trains,
airplanes, motorcycles, and/or any other type of motor vehicle,
who were injured when the vehicle they are either riding in, or
riding on, is involved in an accident.
passengers in motor vehicles are either friends or relatives of
the person in two is operating the vehicle, and are hesitant to
seek legal representation for their injuries. The bottom line is
if you are a passenger in a motor vehicle that is involved in an
accident, and you are injured, you have the legal right to be
compensated for your loss.
We understand the
dilemma you may face if the operator of the motor vehicle that
you are riding in is a friend or relative, however, that should
not be your main concern. Your main concern should be taking
care of yourself.
The person who was
operating the motor vehicle, should have liability insurance and
or coverage to cover you, the passenger, in cases where they are
at fault in a motor vehicle accident. Although technically, you
will be making a claim against the person operating the motor
vehicle, in reality, you will be making a claim against their
insurance company. In extreme cases of injury, the person
operating a motor vehicle in which you are riding may not have
enough insurance coverage to cover your entire loss. In these
types of cases, you will be in reality, seeking full
compensation from the person who is a fault.
It may be that the
person who is driving the vehicle in which you were a passenger
is not at fault in the accident. In this type of situation, you
will be seeking compensation from the at fault person or persons
responsible for the accident.
may be a combination of fault between multiple drivers in the
accident, including the driver of the vehicle in which you are a
In any case, we
always recommend that you retain a lawyer to represent your
legal interests, Passenger cases are usually easier to obtain a
recovery on, because you usually do not have the burden of proof
as to who is at fault. The passenger will generally make a claim
against all drivers in an accident, and let the chips fall where
If you are a
passenger in any type of motor vehicle that is involved in an
accident, you may call our law firm for free legal consultation

dog bite cases: In the state of California, the owners of
dogs are strictly liable for the actions of their pets. The
owners of dogs have a duty to ensure that their dogs stay on
their property, and not bite people. Most people think that dog
bites do not merit retaining in attorney. However, we have seen
cases where victims of dog attacks and maulings have suffered
horrible injuries. In many cases that we have seen, the owners
of said dogs are either family friends, or neighbors. For this
reason many victims of dog attacks are hesitant to seek legal
representation to protect their rights. You must understand,
that it was not your fault that you were attacked by the dog,
and that you are entitled to compensation for your pain and
suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, medical expenses, lost
wages, emotional distress, permanent scarring, and other losses
which occur in a dog bite case.
If you were the
victim of a dog attack, we obviously recommend that you get
medical treatment as soon as possible. It is very important that
you identify the owner of the dog, because they are liable for
the dog's actions. Furthermore, if the owner of the dog lives in
an apartment or a leased home, the landlord may be liable for
your injuries in the dog attack, if they knew, or should have
known of the dangerous propensity of the dog. As in other
personal injury cases, we recommend that you report the dog
attack as soon as possible to the owner of the dog, as well as
he owner of the property where the dog ordinarily is kept. When
reporting the incident as mentioned above, ask the person that
you're reporting the incident to for a copy of their driver's
license, or other identifying information. Also try to write
down a physical description of the person that you're reporting
the incident to. We further recommend that you call the police
department, and or your local animal control organization so
that a formal report of the incident can be made. You should
never assume that the dog that bit you is free of disease. You
should insist that the dog be taken by animal control for rabies
testing. We then recommend that you call us at
(800) 816-1529, Ext. 1, so that we can evaluate your case.
ASSAULT and battery cases: Assault and battery cases are
intentional torts. What this means is that you can recover not
only special and general damages, but you can also recover
punitive damages in such cases. Punitive damages which are also
known as exemplary damages, are meant to punish the person who
committed the act, and can far exceed your other damages.
However, these types of cases are ordinarily not covered by
ASSAULT: Assault is
defined as an intentional act which creates an imminent
apprehension of a harmful or offensive contact on the part of
the victim. The apprehension must be reasonable. What this means
in layman terms is that of someone for instance raises their arm
as though they were going to hit you, and you feel like you're
about to be hit, and your belief is reasonable, you're the
victim of an assault, and are entitled to legal compensation for
BATTERY: Battery is
defined as an intentional act which causes a harmful or
offensive contact. What this means in layman's terms is that if
someone for instance it hits you, or grabs you, you are the
victim of a battery, and are entitled to legal compensation for
being battered. remember, battery is not just being hit, it is a
harmful or offensive contact. So battery can include not only
being hit, but it can also include: rape, someone intentionally
striking your car with the intent to scare you, someone grabbing
your buttocks, or other contacts of this nature.
If you have been
assaulted or battered, it is critical that you call the police
immediately and report the incident. If you are injured, we
recommend as always that you seek medical attention as soon as
possible. We then recommend that you call us at
(800) 816-1529, Ext. 1, so that we can evaluate your case.
EXCESSIVE use of force: In certain circumstances police
agencies, security guards, or store merchants, are allowed to
restrain you for investigatory purposes. However, and depending
upon the entity or agency that is restraining you, there is
always a legal standard of care as to what force can be used to
restrain you under the circumstances. For instance, a store
merchant suspects you of shoplifting cannot have you beat up by
their security guards if you are not offering any resistance.
Furthermore, a police officer cannot shoot you if you are not
offering any resistance and pose no threat. Excessive use of
force cases are always factually based. In other words, each
case has to be examined to determine if there's been a violation
of your rights, and whether excessive use of force has been used
upon you. If you believe that you have been the victim of an
excessive use of force case, we highly recommend that you call
us at (800) 816-1529, Ext. 1, so that we can evaluate your case.
FALSE imprisonment: false imprisonment can basically be
defined as a person being intentionally held without their
permission within a bounded area with the reasonable belief that
they cannot leave. these types of cases can not only involved a
person actually being locked in a room or space, but they can
also involve a person being forced to stay in a location because
something of value is being held without their permission. As an
excessive use of force cases, false imprisonment cases are
factually driven cases. If you believe that you have been the
victim of a false imprisonment, we highly recommend that you
call our office at (800) 816-1529, Ext. 1, so we can evaluate your
