Perris: Man Seriously Injured in Pedestrian Accident
Posted on Aug 12, 2013
At about 9:41 p.m. on Saturday, August 10, a man was seriously injured in a pedestrian accident in Perris. A motorist struck the man as he traversed the intersection of South A and West Ninth streets. Authorities do not suspect that alcohol or drugs were a factor and are investigating the accident. Witnesses, or anyone with information about the accident, are asked to call traffic investigators at 951-210-1000.
“Pedestrians who are injured in accidents that are attributable to the negligence of motorists have recourse through the civil justice system,” explained California pedestrian accident lawyer James Ballidis. “They may file personal injury claims in order to pursue compensation for recovery-related expenses, such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
Perris accounted for 2 of the 31 fatalities and 12 of the 370 injuries suffered by pedestrians in traffic accidents that occurred in Riverside County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Perris 69th out of 103 cities for its incidence of fatal and injury pedestrian accidents in a rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the man who was seriously injured in the pedestrian accident.
