Lathrop Pedestrian Crash on Lakeside Drive and Patriot Way Killed Male Victim
Lathrop, California (March 4, 2020) – A vehicle driven by a female party struck and killed a male pedestrian in Lathrop at about 7:45 a.m. March 3.
According to a report by Lathrop police, the man was hit by the unspecified vehicle while he was trying to cross a street in the area of Lakeside Drive and Patriot Way on Tuesday morning.
The female driver stopped after the accident and cooperated with the investigation.
Sadly, the pedestrian was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The identities of the involved victims were not immediately disclosed at the time of the report.
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
