A woman was struck and injured in a severe pedestrian accident that took place on January 22, 2012, around 8:07 p.m. in Lake Elsinore. According to Riverside County sheriff’s officials, the pedestrian was crossing a major road when she got hit by a white sedan struck along the 32600 block of Mission Trail, about a half-mile north of Corydon Road.
Deputies found the woman lying in the street and immediately transported her to Inland Valley Medical Center for treatment. From the present facts, it is unclear as to how this pedestrian accident occurred. Was the motorist distracted? Or was he speeding?
At this time, the victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced Riverside County car accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights. If negligent operation by the motorist caused this car accident, then he may be legally required to compensate the victim’s family for the cost of treatment, and other related damages.
Our personal injury law office hopes that the injuries suffered by the victim heal soon and do not prove serious.
