As the City of Bakersfield population continues to grow, so does the occurrence of pedestrian-vehicle accidents. Pedestrian accidents often result in catastrophic injuries that will cause higher medical expenses and much longer-lasting consequences than the average automobile accident. Hit-and-run collisions (back link) are the leading cause of pedestrian accidents including fatalities, in Central California. Some of the common reason pedestrians are hit are:
- Texting and driving
- Failure to yield to pedestrians
- Driving under the influence
- Disobeying traﬃc signs
- Disregarding the weather
Most places where pedestrians are hit are in cities and places other than an intersection. Regardless of where or how, being a pedestrian hit by a vehicle can leave lasting eﬀects on one’s physical and mental state. You’ll want to get a top settlement and as much insurance compensation as possible. Let Donald Colvin help you!
