Costa Mesa Pedestrian Collision Seriously Injured By Drunk Driver

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on August 10, 2011 - Comments off

21-year-old Katushka Fischmann of Santa Ana, was struck and injured in a serious DUI crash that occurred on August 7, 2011, around 1:45 a.m. at the intersection of Bristol Street and Randolph Avenue in Costa Mesa.
Santa Police reported that Bonnie Yee was driving her Mercedes-Benz north when she struck Fischmann near a crosswalk. Fischmann suffered major head trauma and was immediately transported to Western Medical Center-Santa Ana for treatment.
Police officials later arrested Yee on suspicion of felony driving under the influence. It is indeed an unfortunate thing that due to the negligent and intoxicated driver, a oung woman is left in critical condition. Yee will most likely be found to have violated California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a) which states that “It is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle.”
Unfortunately the magnitude of injuries suffered by Fischmann is very high and the treatment or recovery time may be long. Fischmann needs to consult with an experienced Orange County pedestrian accident lawyer to learn about her legal rights and options and obtain a timely compensation to cover treatment, hospital and medical costs, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity, and other accident-related damages.
