Natomas Pedestrian Collision
A woman was in the roadway crossing the street when she was struck by an automobile. Authorities arrived and transported the injured pedestrian to the hospital with what was reported as non-life threatening injuries. It was not known if the pedestrian was in a crosswalk or lighted signal area when the incident happened. Although pedestrian involved accidents can occur even when using crosswalks and light signals most pedestrian accidents happen outside of these areas.
Investigating Natomas Pedestrian Collisions
A car versus pedestrian accident demands a very thorough investigation. I’ve handled hundreds of pedestrian injury accidents for well over thirty years. If you or a loved one have been hit by a car, you are well aware of the physical pain, emotional trauma, and financial losses that happen with these types of accidents. Vehicle accidents involving pedestrians are deceptively complex cases. They can require expert testimony in order to effectively establish fault and to determine the true extent of injuries.
Succeeding with a pedestrian injury lawsuit will often demand that the pedestrian’s personal injury lawyer consider and be well-prepared to discuss with the court or jury what makes pedestrian accidents different than typical motor vehicle collisions.
The sooner a pedestrian accident lawyer is able to start a detailed investigation, the more evidence he is likely to discover. This is why it is so important for an injured pedestrian to obtain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the accident.
