35-year-old Clifford Richardson was injured in a serious pedestrian accident that occurred on December 1, 2011, around 11:12 p.m. in the traffic lanes of Highway 18 (SR-18) east of Apple Valley Road. According to San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials, Richardson was hit from the back by a motorist while he was walking around the traffic lanes.
Richardson suffered serious injuries and was immediately transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center from where he was airlifted to a trauma unit. 70-year-old Floyd Keeth who struck Richardson told officials that he failed to see the dark-clothed victim.
The injured pedestrian’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Bernardino County car crash lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights. The injured victim may also file a personal injury claim against Keeth to obtain compensation to cover treatment, medical and hospital costs, and other accident-related expenses.
Our personal injury law office hopes that the injuries suffered by the pedestrian do not prove fatal.
