2 Bicyclists Struck in Separate Car Crashes

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on November 30, 2011 - Comments off

Two cyclists, a 10-year-old girl and a 23-year-old woman, are recovering from injuries they sustained after being hit by vehicles in two different auto accidents in San Diego.
The 10-year-old girl was riding eastbound on Catalina Boulevard at about 7:20 a.m. Tuesday when a 2011 Chevy van turned the corner on Wilcoz and hit her at the intersection. Despite what most people think, the young girl knows how to ride and was doing it safely. She competes in triathlons for kids and was riding in front of her dad, who was training with her. Her father barely avoided the collision.
The girl was taken to the hospital for a fractured leg and collar bone.
The 23-year-old woman sustained non-life-threatening facial fractures when a Hyundai SUV tried to pass her on the 4900 block of College Avenue, near Cresita Drive, at about 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday. The 55 year-old SUV driver was obviously in too much of a hurry to wait until it was safe to pass.
Both drivers’ negligent driving caused these bicycle accidents, and they may be held liable for the damages, including medical bills, loss of income, etc. The victims’ family should immediately seek counsel with a San Diego County bike collision attorney to learn about how to get the compensation they need to cover these expenses.

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on October 5, 2011 - Comments off

An unidentified 25-year-old cyclist suffered serious injuries when he was struck by an open car door on September 28, 2011, around 7 p.m. outside 2800 University Ave. According to the San Diego police Officer David Stafford, the bicyclist was riding westbound on University Avenue when a 35-year-old man opened the door of his parked Dodge, knocking the cyclist to the ground.
The biker suffered serious head injuries and was immediately transported to a local trauma center.

Elderly Woman Suffers Injuries In Otay Mesa Pedestrian Accident

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on April 18, 2011 - Comments off

An unidentified 50-year-old pedestrian suffered serious injuries while crossing a street near Silverwing Park in the Otay Mesa area of San Diego . San Diego Police Officer Frank Cali stated that the victim was attempting to cross Arey Drive around 10:30 a.m. on April 16, 2011, when she was hit by a BMW car travelling east towards Picardor Boulevard.
The injured woman suffered a serious head injury and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. Based on this news report through 10news.com, it is suspected that the sedan driver might have run the stop sign or was speeding and this lead to this serious car accident. Normally, California law holds that drivers must give the right of way to pedestrians in marked crosswalks and at an intersection. Drivers are operating potentially deadly machines and can inflict fatal injuries on pedestrians if they are not following the law or are careless. However, even given these protections (which are set forth in California Vehicle Code Section 21950) pedestrians must always exercise reasonable care for their safety.
Even if the pedestrian was at fault, the victim should consult with an experienced San Diego personal injury lawyer to determine her legal rights and options in this case. The lawyer may also find a way to obtain compensation to cover medical and hospitalization expenses, pain and suffering, and other accident-related expenses.

Elderly Man Crashes Car Into La Mesa Store

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on November 26, 2010 - Comments off

An unidentified elderly man crashed his car into the wall of Cost Plus World Market in La Mesa on November 17, 2010. The elderly car driver said that his foot hit the accelerator and the car went in reverse. It appears that the man did not realize that his car was in reverse and was attempting to drive forward. According to witnesses, the elderly car driver crashed into three mailboxes and parts of a concrete wall before his car came to rest against the wall.
The auto accident raises several concerns that are often mentioned about elderly drivers. Even assuming that the elderly driver did not realize his car was in reverse, why didn’t he remove his foot from the accelerator and apply the brake as soon as his car went backwards? Why did it take a concrete wall to stop the vehicle? Presumably, if the car did not collide with the wall it would have kept on traveling and could have struck and killed or injured pedestrians or other motorists. Should elderly drivers be tested more frequently? Should elderly drivers be allowed on the road past a certain age? After their motor skills deteriorate to the point when they don’t realize which direction they are going? Or after they cannot apply the brakes quickly? These are legitimate questions but have to be tempered with the desire of elderly drivers to remain independent and be able to commute on their own as needed.
We are very thankful that no other motorist or pedestrian was injured in this La Mesa car accident.
