“When a pedestrian is injured in a traffic accident, he or she may hold the at-fault party liable for the expense of the recovery,” explained California pedestrian accident lawyer James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
Sixty-nine pedestrians were killed or injured in traffic accidents that occurred in Oxnard in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current records. The OTS ranked Oxnard 17th out of 53 similarly sized cities for its incidence of fatal and injury pedestrian accidents that year; 1st place is the worst possible ranking.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the pedestrian who was struck and injured.
