Pedestrian Injured in San Diego Crash

By Ross Jurewitz on July 23, 2015

Woman Struck By CarA woman was killed in a San Diego car accident when a Nissan Altima struck her as she crossed the street. According to an NBC San Diego news report, the fatal pedestrian accident occurred near Perez Cove Way and Ingraham Street in San Diego. The driver remained at the scene and officials do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Fatal pedestrian accidents can occur at any time and at any location. If you are ever involved in an injury accident, it is your responsibility to remain at the crash site, to contact the authorities and to offer help to the victim if possible. It appears from the report that the driver involved in this tragic accident did the right thing by remaining at the crash site and speaking with the authorities.

If you have lost a loved one in a fatal San Diego pedestrian accident, you are not alone. According to the California Highway Patrol, 82 pedestrians were fatally injured in San Diego in the year 2012.

While every traffic death is tragic to the family of the victim, not all deaths qualify as wrongful under the law. Wrongful death is a legal phrase referring to fatal injuries caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another. Therefore, the family of someone killed in a crash can file a wrongful death claim if they believe that someone else’s careless behavior contributed to their tragic loss.

Car accident cases are often quite complex, and it is not always clear if one party was 100 percent responsible for the accident. If your loved one has been killed in a pedestrian accident please contact the San Diego wrongful death attorneys at the Jurewitz Law Group to better understand your legal rights and options.
