Earlier this month, a 64-year-old Pomona man was critically injured after he was struck by a car.
According to the Pomona Police Department, the man was a pedestrian near the intersection of Tenth Street and Garey Avenue when he was struck by a vehicle around 8:15 p.m. on Aug. 21.
The man was rushed to a nearby hospital. At last report, he was in critical condition.
The driver of the car stayed at the scene and is cooperating with authorities, according to the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.
It isn’t known yet whether charges will be filed against the driver, but even if they are, they won’t help the injured man. If he is interested in being compensated for the medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering he had to incur as a result of this accident (which, as far as we know, was not his fault at all), then he will have to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver.
As Ontario personal injury attorneys, our job is to step in to situations just like this and help people who’ve encountered harm through no fault of their own. No lawsuit of any kind is ever a guaranteed success, but when personal injury lawsuits do come out in favor of the harmed party, the result is often very helpful to the victim as he or she seeks to put his life together.
