Car accident attorney-Samer habbasA recent article from reports that a Live Oak woman and toddler sustained injuries when they were struck by a car as they walked along a sidewalk in a California pedestrian accident. The woman and her 4-year-old son were reportedly walking near an elementary school in Live Oak when a 1997 Subaru Legacy lurched forward from the parking lot at Green Acres Elementary School, went through a fence, landed on the sidewalk and struck the mother and child.

The Subaru’s driver is reportedly a mother in her thirties who had just dropped off her child at the Green Acres preschool. Law enforcement officials investigating the California pedestrian accident think that the driver may have put her foot on the car’s accelerator instead of the brake pedal. The injured woman is a preschool teacher and sustained serious head injuries when she was struck in the forehead by a piece of the fence. Even though the four-year-old child was pinned beneath the Subaru in the accident, the boy reportedly only suffered minor injuries. Both mother and child were airlifted to a trauma center for treatment.

California pedestrian accidents claim countless lives each year and injure many more who then must contend with the steep costs of medical treatment. An experienced personal injury attorney can help those injured in California pedestrian accidents receive the compensation they deserve to offset the costs of recovery and other expenses related to the pedestrian accident.
