Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A 16-year-old was injured after crashing his
bicycle into a sheriff’s patrol car in Palmdale, California. The boy was
seriously injured when he entered the intersection when the patrol vehicle
had the green light. The deputy was not able to stop in time, and the
collision happened between the bicyclist and the car. The boy suffered
multiple injuries and listed in serious condition at a local hospital.
The vehicle had a shattered windshield, but the deputies were uninjured
in the crash.
Pedestrian accidents send over 65,000 people to the emergency room each
year. Sometimes pedestrian’s safety on the road is not protected
by crosswalks because many pedestrians choose not to use it or use it
incorrectly. Anyone utilizing a crosswalk needs to abide by the proper
signals and signs. Pedestrian accidents can be preventable if all parties
stay alert and abide by all traffic signs and signals. However, if you
suffer injuries in a pedestrian accident at no fault of your own, you
could be entitled to compensation. Medical costs for injuries can be expensive
and result in thousands of dollars owed for your care. This can be difficult
for victims who are already suffering due to their injuries. Always contact
a personal injury attorney if you or a loved one is injured in an accident.
