Driver drives away after hitting pedestrian in San Francisco

If you’re crossing a street in San Francisco, maybe you’re aware of the risks. Maybe you know that a driver might run a red light, or a turning vehicle might barrel through an occupied crosswalk, or maybe a vehicle even hops the curb and hits somebody on the sidewalk. You know the risks, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a right to walk without fear of being struck by a negligent driver.

What may be more difficult to envision is being in the midst of the actual physical and financial repercussions that follow a pedestrian accident. Even with injuries that initially appear to be minor, inflammation and other painful ailments can creep up over time, requiring you to miss work or even undergo surgery. Consider a recent hit-and-run pedestrian accident on The Embarcadero.

As of Aug. 2, police were still looking for the driver of a white pickup truck that struck a 51-year-old pedestrian. The driver left the scene in the direction of Interstate Highway 80, and the injured man was taken to a hospital.

The accident happened just after 5 a.m., but by now there may be little chance of showing whether or not the driver was intoxicated at the time of the collision.

The accidents sustained by the victim were apparently thought to be minor, as a news report indicates that he was listed in good condition.

When this sort of act of negligence happens and causes injury to innocent parties, they need to be aware of their legal options. It may be possible to recover compensation for medical bills and other expenses that resulted from a crash. In any case, no one wants to be stuck with debts or a reduced paycheck because of another person’s negligent actions.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
