Fatal Palmdale Pedestrian Accident on East Avenue R, Sunday Night
Palmdale, California (April 27, 2020) – A 35-year-old Hispanic man died at the scene after being hit by a westbound blue 2015 Chrysler sedan at the 2100 block of East Avenue R in Palmdale at approximately 9:30 p.m. April 26.
The unidentified pedestrian was crossing northbound on a dimly lit part at the time of the collision.
Details regarding the driver of the involved vehicle were not immediately disclosed at the time of the report.
The investigators 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.
