Littlerock, California (February 14, 2020) - A 59-year-old Palmdale man was killed in a pedestrian accident in the Littlerock area of Los Angeles on Thursday morning.
The accident happened at about 1:40 a.m. February 13 on Avenue T near 94th Street East.
The California Highway Patrol said a man was walking in the area and was hit by an eastbound 2014 Chevrolet by Shilo Schopp.
The impact of the collision caused the man to crash through the windshield.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
The identity of the victim was not immediately identified.
Shilo Schopp is reported to have sustained minor cuts in the accident and was taken to Palmdale Regional Medical Center for medical care.
No additional further information about the accident was provided.
The authorities are investigating the cause of the accident.
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.
Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accident victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by the tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”
While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice, in this case, helps bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
