Lawyers Step Up To Help Injured Palm Desert Pedestrian Car Accident Victims

Have you suffered an injury or the death of a loved one in a pedestrian car accident in Palm Desert or nearby southern California communities? Seek personal injury compensation for your injury or loss with Nordstrom, Steele, Nicolette & Blythe.

Pedestrian accidents are distressingly common in California, and Palm Desert is far from the exception. In 2016, Palm Desert had over twice the national average in pedestrian fatalities. In fact, pedestrian fatalities account for 25% of all accident deaths despite being far less common because they are far more dangerous and deadly.

The personal injury law firm of Nordstrom, Steele, Nicolette & Blythe predates the population boom in the Palm Desert area over the last 40 years.  They have witnessed firsthand the dramatic increase in pedestrian accident injuries and deaths during this time and have (unfortunately) extensive experience fighting for the just compensation of these victims and their families.

As one of California 's oldest and most recognized personal injury law firms, Nordstrom, Steele, Nicolette & Blythe will help you file a personal injury claim or wrongful death suit if you, or a loved one, have been injured or died in a pedestrian accident. While no amount of monetary compensation can make up for the trauma and injuries, it is a start.

Why Are Pedestrian Accidents So Common And Deadly In Palm Desert, California?

Palm Desert has seen its population rise by over 400% since the 1980s. As families move inland, retirees escape the cities, and snowbirds fly south each winter, the region's popularity and population only continue to grow. Without limited public transportation, most residents still get by on cars, though the increasing presence of other vehicles, such as bicycles, golf carts, electric scooters and more, has done little to improve safety on our roads or sidewalks.

The inevitable accidents often cost pedestrians' lives or health as their lack of protection inherently puts them at greater risk of injury and death when struck by a vehicle. Worse still, Palm Desert’s demographics mean there is an above-average number of children, youths, and elderly citizens on the sidewalks (and in the vehicles!). All of them are more vulnerable and more likely to suffer serious injuries or deaths when hit by moving vehicles.
