Fresno CA: Pedestrian Hospitalized after Collision at Shaw, Marty Ave

Fresno, CA – Just after midnight on Saturday, March 2, 2024, in northwest Fresno, a female pedestrian was struck by a vehicle, according to ABC30.

Initial investigations suggest that the victim, a woman in her 40s, walked into traffic from the center divide on Shaw Avenue near Marty Avenue. The driver who struck her stayed on the scene. Emergency responders transported the victim to Community Regional Medical Center.

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.
