San Francisco pedestrian struck by vehicle

Because they don’t have a vehicle to shield them, pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to serious injuries and death when they are struck by a car. In recent months there have been a number of pedestrian accidents in San Francisco, some of which were caused by driver negligence. In a city with so many people walking on the street, these tragic stories should remind drivers how important it is to always pay attention to pedestrians and do everything they can to avoid another deadly incident.

After she was hit by a car while running, a 32-year-old woman was sent to the hospital for treatment of significant injuries that appeared to threaten her life. However, her condition improved later on. The woman attempted to cross Pine Street in San Francisco, near Union Square, when a vehicle hit her.

According to a law enforcement official, the driver cooperated with authorities and was unable to stay clear of the pedestrian. This incident is one of several pedestrian accidents that have recently occurred in the city, some of which have been fatal.

Whether an accident takes place at a busy intersection or quiet crosswalk, pedestrians can struggle with more than just physical and emotional pain. Unfortunately, the financial impact can be devastating for victims and their families, with costly medical and funeral bills. Furthermore, some victims may consider filing a lawsuit but do not know how to approach the legal system. If you are dealing with any of this as a result of a pedestrian accident, you could benefit from speaking to an attorney.

Pedestrian Accident

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.
