On the heels of deadly San Diego car accident that took the lives of two people, including a former Marine, California Highway Patrol are now investigating a pedestrian accident involving an adult and child in Borrego Springs.

It happened Tuesday evening. Details of the accident are unclear, however officials say the victims were on foot when they were struck by a car. The victims were flown to area hospitals with injuries. The driver of the car allegedly stayed at the scene until officers arrived.

Pedestrian accidents killed more than 4-thousand people each year, and injure 70-thousand more. Unfortunately, research conducted on hospital records shows that only a fraction of pedestrian accidents that cause injury are reported to police.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) California is among one of the top four states for pedestrian fatalities.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a car in a pedestrian accident, it is important to do three things:

1. Report the incident to police. 

2. Seek medication attention.

3. Get immediate counsel from a San Diego Personal Injury Attorney

When a pedestrian accident occurs, the pedestrian has the same right to seek financial compensation as any motorist. San Diego Pedestrian Accident Lawyers, like the Law Office of Steven A. Elia, handle injury claims and are familiar with the unique issues involved in pedestrian accidents and pedestrian injuries. We will work relentlessly to obtain for you the compensation to which you are entitled.

"Words can never express the gratitude that my husband and I have for Attorney Steven Elia and attorney Holly Attiq.. For 2 years, we were put through fire with our personal injury case, but luckily we met Steven and Holly, that made the brutal process of litigation as comfortable as it can be for our family. And even after the dust came down, they still check on us very often and offer their services to try to help us to stand back on our feet."
