Laura White Fatal Garden Grove Pedestrian Accident at Valley View Street and Lampson Avenue
Garden Grove, California (April 23, 2020) – The female pedestrian who was struck and killed by a vehicle in Garden Grove Wednesday morning has been identified as 64-year-old Laura White, a resident of Garden Grove.
White was struck by a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado driven by a 39-year-old man while crossing the intersection of Valley View Street and Lampson Avenue at about 6:45 a.m.
Officials said the Chevrolet was making a right turn to head east prior to the collision. The male operator of the Chevrolet stopped after hitting White and cooperated with the law.
An investigation into the crash is underway.
A person on foot is no match for a vehicle. Pedestrians have virtually no protection when they are hit by cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other vehicles. Sadly, this often leads to catastrophic injuries and/or death. “Due to the incredibly serious nature of these types of injuries, pedestrian accident cases often require special care in order to help ensure victims receive the full compensation they need for extensive medical bills, ongoing rehabilitation therapy, in-home care, lost past and future earnings, and numerous other economic and non-economic damages”, Said Arin Khodaverdian, an experienced pedestrian accident attorney.
Arin noted that pedestrians, in most instances, have the right-of-way when crossing a street or an intersection. According to Arin, to properly investigate a pedestrian crash and prove negligence, enough resources are required. “A skilled attorney has the resources and will help investigate the accident to determine the party at fault,” Arin said
