In California, there are numerous right of way laws that are in place to protect pedestrians. Every driver has the obligation to slow down and carefully watch for pedestrians at each and every crosswalk, whether it is marked or unmarked. There are several factors that could have played a role in this accident, and police are currently investigating. Authorities are working diligently to determine whether speed, alcohol or drugs or distracted driving possibly played a part in the incident.
The main purpose of these lengthy investigations is to determine whether or not the driver who caused the crash was acting negligently. If it is determined that the driver in this accident was operating the vehicle in a negligent manner, the pedestrian who was hurt in the crash will likely have a strong case for compensation. A strong personal injury lawsuit in a case like this will seek to obtain full compensation for all lost wages, medical bills, hospital bills, and pain and suffering.
