In San Diego County, an average of 1,140 accidents involving pedestrians take place every year. That equates to more than three incidents every day, or one for every eight hours. This rate indicates an increase in the occurrence of such incidents which evidently threaten the safety of the individuals using the road.
In this case, investigators are still looking into several factors such as DUI, distracted driving and negligence in order to determine precisely what led to the collision. If the investigation proves that a party has been negligent and caused the pedestrian accident, it is likely that the victim may have the right to a personal injury lawsuit.
