Pedestrian Hospitalized in Peach Ave Crash Near Ashlan Ave

Clovis, CA – According to the Fresno Bee, on the night of Friday, March 1, 2024, a pedestrian was injured in a collision with a vehicle.

Just after 7 PM, the Clovis Police Department received word of the accident and sent emergency responders to the crash site on Peach Avenue, north of Ashlan Avenue, where they found the victim lying in the roadway.

Duty of Care Toward Pedestrians

Drivers are expected to provide a special “duty of care” toward pedestrians, who have greater vulnerability and are more likely to receive fatal injuries in traffic collisions. However, establishing liability can depend on multiple factors. Sorting through these complexities to determine fault is one of the services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Even after fault is established, insurance companies will attempt to minimize any claim they cannot deny. That is another place where a personal injury attorney can prove valuable by negotiating on behalf of victims to win for them the full compensation they are due.
