Newhall, California (March 17, 2020) – A 55-year-old woman was hospitalized after being involved in a pedestrian accident that took place at the intersection of Lyons and Peachland avenues in Newhall at approximately 7:55 a.m.
As per the Los Angeles County Fire Department report, the pedestrian was hospitalized with unspecified injuries after being struck by a late model Hyundai in a shopping center parking lot near the intersection Monday morning.
The driver was reportedly searching for a parking space before the occurrence of the accident.
It was not mentioned whether or not the involved motorist stopped after the wreck and cooperated with the investigation.
The detectives handling the case are gathering more details to identify 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.
