Student Hit on Way to School

Police were continuing to investigate an early morning Anaheim car accident that left an elementary school student injured. A spokesperson for the Anaheim Police Department said that the female student was attempting to cross the street at Lincoln and Monterey. She was reportedly in a crosswalk when she was struck by a motor vehicle. As an auto accident attorney, we know how difficult the time after an accident is. That is why we are here to help you.

No Crossing Guard Present

Authorities report that the girl arrived at the crosswalk at approximately 7 a.m., and that the crossing guard assigned to assist students that morning had not yet arrived to direct traffic. The student required transport to a local hospital where she received treatment for her injuries. The full extent of her injuries was not known right away.

The motorist allegedly involved in the pedestrian accident did stop and speak with responding officers. The police investigation into the incident was said to be ongoing.

Safety of Students Walking to School

Crossing guards are typically at key intersections in an attempt to ensure the safety of students that are walking to school in the morning. It is not known whether or not the crossing guard was late. However, a subsequent investigation that addresses this issue may be pertinent to the case.

There are California state statutes that address the circumstances under which pedestrians have the right-of-way. Such laws exist, in part, to protect pedestrians that are particularly vulnerable in traffic.

Suffering from injuries? Contact an auto accident attorney today!

In a pedestrian accident, a personal injury lawsuit may be filed on behalf of the person who is suffering. We must file a civil court with proper jurisdiction, and it must be filed in a timely manner. Such litigation may seek compensation for unpaid medical expenses, pain and suffering, possible long-term medical treatment and other losses. Furthermore, as an accident lawyer, we want to make sure you receive the best care possible.
