pedestrian hit by car sacramento

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. A hit and run pedestrian crash happened in Midtown Sacramento on Tuesday, July 26, 2016.

What Happened?

The pedestrian involved in the hit and run crash was 29-year-old, Arash Dabestani. Dabestani is a blind student that is attending the Society for the Blind. Dabestani lost his eye vision approximately seven years ago. Dabestani initiated orientation and mobility classes in Midtown Sacramento at the Society for the Blind about seven months prior to the accident. Dabestani was struck by a vehicle that also broke his mobility cane while he was using the crosswalk for the 15th Street and S Street intersection.

We extend our sympathy and best wishes for a speedy recovery to Mr. Dabestani.

Uninsured Motorist Insurance

Even though the driver fled the scene of the pedestrian accident, there may still be insurance coverage available if the pedestrian lives in a home where someone has a policy of auto insurance with uninsured motorist coverage.  Take a moment to watch the Youtube Video I made that discusses this type of insurance coverage.
