Woman Injured in Pedestrian Accident on Alpine Boulevard Near West Victoria Drive
Alpine, California (February 16, 2020) – A pedestrian accident that took place on Alpine Boulevard west of West Victoria Drive in Alpine Friday morning injured a 26-year-old woman, a local news source reported.
The female party, who was crossing the northbound street outside of a crosswalk, was hit by a 2009 Scion TC sedan traveling east on Alpine Boulevard shortly before 7:30 a.m. February 14.
The initial report showed that the Scion driver, who was identified as a 31-year-old Lakeside man, swerved to the left in an attempt to avoid the woman, but the right front side of the sedan hit the pedestrian.
The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation.
The female party sustained a broken right leg and multiple cuts. She was airlifted to Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego by a helicopter ambulance.
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
