Pedestrian Seriously Injured in Crash on Union Avenue in Bakersfield

Man Suffers Major Injuries in Bakersfield Pedestrian Crash on Union Avenue

Bakersfield, California (March 22, 2020) – A hit-and-run accident in the 1600 block of Union Avenue in Bakersfield left a pedestrian with serious injuries Saturday evening, according to a local news source.

The man, whose name was not immediately disclosed, was trying to cross Union Avenue when a vehicle struck him at around 8:13 p.m. March 21.

Emergency crews responded to the scene and administered life-saving measures to the man. He was then rushed to a nearby hospital with moderate to major injuries.

The driver involved fled the scene but later contacted the police.

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
