At about 9:20 a.m. on Tuesday, July 10th, a vehicle struck and killed a 53-year-old female pedestrian in San Diego. The woman, who was in town to attend Comic-Con at the San Diego Convention Center, was traversing a crosswalk at Fifth Avenue and Harbor Drive when a Subaru hit her. She suffered major head trauma and was transported to a hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“After a fatal pedestrian accident, the family of the victim may, in many cases, hold the at-fault party liable for their loss,” explained California personal injury attorney James Ballidis, “oftentimes by pursuing a wrongful death claim.”
In 2010, 992 pedestrians were killed or injured in traffic accidents in San Diego County, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. In a comparison of the traffic data for 58 counties in the state, the OTS ranked San Diego 11th for pedestrian safety in a rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the woman who the vehicle struck and killed.
U-T San Diego originally reported this accident.
Additional information on the injury and the wrongful death claims process is available to the public free of charge through our office.
