Car Hits Modesto Pedestrian

I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto auto accident lawyer. A pedestrian was crossing a street in Modesto when he was struck by a vehicle on the evening of November 8, 2016. Unfortunately, the accident left the pedestrian in critical condition.

What Happened?

A driver was traveling westbound on Yosemite Boulevard in Modesto when a pedestrian was attempting to cross the street. According to Heather Graves, a spokeswoman for the Modesto Police Department, the pedestrian sustained traumatic injuries as a result of being hit by the vehicle. First responders transported the injured pedestrian to a local hospital in Modesto. The driver of the car remained at the scene and was cooperative with authorities.

What Caused the Pedestrian Accident?

It is too soon to determine a cause in the pedestrian accident. It usually takes about ten days for an investigating agency to prepare a report of their findings. Sometimes the raffic collision report is inconclusive as to fault or may contain errors. It is very important to contact an experienced pedestrian attorney if you have been hit by a car. A good attorney will investigate the events leading up to the collision and help you recover compensation for your injuries if the driver was at fault. Contact an experienced pedestrian attorney if you have have additional questions.

Injuries from Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents like the one described above are very serious. A pedestrian is vulnerable to injury because they have no form of protection around them against a moving vehicle. Even a vehicle that is approaching a pedestrian at a slow velocity can cause major injuries such as bone fractures and traumatic brain injuries.

We extend our best wishes for a speedy and full recover to the pedestrian injured in this incident.
