$499k Recovered for a Crosswalk Accident

Our client was on his way walking northbound to a hair salon and entered the intersection upon a white illuminated walk signal at the intersection of El Cajon Boulevard and Art Street in San Diego, California. At that time, the defendant operating a vehicle traveling eastbound entered the intersection from the south and began to left-hand turn toward El Cajon Boulevard. The defendant driver failed to yield to the white illuminated walk signal and continued to make a left turn, striking our client with the front bumper and the driver’s side of the vehicle.

Upon impact, our client collapsed on the ground and hit their head on the pavement. Immediately after the impact, they complained of pain in the left ankle, numbness in their back, right knee, and leg.

The police officer on the scene of the collision found the defendant driver at fault for the violation of California Vehicle Code 21950 (a) C.V.C for not yielding to the right-of-way of pedestrians.

The defendant driver owed a duty of reasonable care to the general public and particularly our client breached these duties when they acted unreasonably, carelessly, recklessly, and negligently under the circumstances, thereby forcefully causing this collision. The defendant driver’s failure to keep a proper lookout for conditions of the road violated statutes and resulted in the collision. They did not see our client in the crosswalk and struck them with their vehicle.
