What does a human conveyor belt have to do with a pedestrian accident in Los Angeles? Los Angeles pedestrian accidents come in many shapes and sizes. Most of us think of car accidents involving a bicyclist or a runner when we think of “pedestrian accident” victims. Unlike a moving vehicle case, the pedestrian in a moving sidewalk case can’t get out of the way. You are typically drawn into the accident via a conveyor belt.
First thing, a pedestrian is basically anyone on foot. The reality is, indoor moving conveyor belts, known as moving walkways, can cause a pedestrian accident, dismemberment, or even complications leading to skull fractures, spinal cord injuries, amputation, or even wrongful death.

From negotiating a settlement, to filing a lawsuit, I’m your man. Below I am going to cover these devices, as well as some pedestrian accident statistics involving pedestrian accident victims using these and other types of lift machines.
In the end, I will discuss recovering medical costs and fair compensation like lost wages. Ehline Law Firm’s award-winning Los Angeles moving walkway accident attorneys have vast legal experience helping tort victims both on and off the pavement.
First thing, a moving walkway (auto walk, moving sidewalk, travelator, or flat escalator) speeds travelers along short to medium distances in a designated horizontal direction of motion, crossing great distances faster.
