Torem & Associates

Modesto, CA (December 15, 2021) – A pedestrian sustained major injuries after their involvement in an accident in Modesto on Tuesday, December 14. Just before 6:00 p.m., the wreck took place on Paradise Road. 

Sources say that the crash happened near the intersection of Paradise Road and Harris Avenue when a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle. When officials arrived at the scene, they found the pedestrian lying in the roadway with serious injuries. 

The unidentified pedestrian was rushed to an area hospital for treatment by ambulance. Officers with the California Highway Patrol closed the roadway to investigate the circumstances of the incident. 

The involved driver remained on-site and cooperated with officials. No further information has been reported at this time. 

We hope for the full and fast recovery of the injured victim.

Pedestrian Accidents in California

The major cities in California have seen an alarming increase in pedestrian-involved auto accidents and fatalities in recent years. Speeding, smartphones, and an increase in cars, trucks, and motorcycles sharing the road are some contributing factors for this unfortunate rise in accidents. As pedestrian collisions increase, so does the need for pedestrian crash attorneys. 

Unlike regular auto wrecks, pedestrian crashes almost always result in catastrophic injuries for victims or even death. Victims are often forced to deal with towering medical costs in order to cover treatment for devastating injuries. They must endure lost income and lengthy recovery periods that force them to miss time with family and friends. This may all be accompanied by an enormous mental toll that can impact them for years to come depending on the circumstances of the incident. 

While we as drivers possess a moral and legal responsibility to always look out for and protect pedestrians, the majority of pedestrians injured in collisions are clueless on what to do in the aftermath of a serious crash. Read on to learn more about what to do if you or someone you love has recently been injured in an accident.
