Carson, California (March 18, 2020) – An older woman died after she was struck a vehicle as she was crossing an intersection in Carson Monday night, according to authorities.
Authorities said the elderly woman was jaywalking across the intersection when a vehicle struck her.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.
The driver involved in the accident stopped at the scene and cooperated with the authorities. Investigators determined that the driver was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash.
The accident remains under investigation.
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 apedestrian 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
