Authorities Investigating Berkeley Pedestrian Accident at Essex and Adeline Streets
Berkeley, California (March 9, 2020) – According to the Berkeley Police Department, one victim sustained non-life threatening injuries after being hit by an unspecified vehicle at the intersection of Essex and Adeline streets in Berkeley at around 2:00 p.m.
The circumstances that lead to the February 28 collision were not immediately released at the time of the report.
The current condition and the identity of the patient remain unknown to this time.
Details about the involved driver have not yet been disclosed to this time.
The detectives handling the case are gathering more evidence to determine 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
