Burlingame, California (April 30, 2020) – Authorities are investigating a Thursday morning auto-pedestrian crash that left one person seriously injured in Burlingame.
At about 8:37 a.m. the police responded to the major injury traffic collision in the northbound lanes of Highway 101, just south of Broadway off-ramp.
According to the authorities, a male pedestrian was, for unknown reasons, hit by a car on the roadway. The factors that contributed to the crash are yet to be established.
The pedestrian was hospitalized with severe injuries sustained from the mishap.
Two vehicles were reportedly located at the crash site, but only one of them was involved in the accident.
It was not clear if the pedestrian was one of the motorists.
An investigation into the crash is underway.
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
