Last week, a two-car crash that happened at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Laurel Street hit two pedestrians. The couple who was hit said they were going to the Haunted Trail at Balboa Park. They were struck while waiting to cross the street.
“I just saw the headlights going towards me, and if I didn’t dodge the car, I would have been pinned on that tree.”
Police say that a white Toyota was going south on Sixth. As it was crossing the intersection with Laurel, it was hit by a blue Honda that was making a left turn. The Toyota driver stayed at the scene but the Honda driver fled.
While we await the investigation of this accident, we know that this highlights one of the many ways that people can sustain a personal injury. Do you know where to turn if you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence?

What Can Happen?
While we do not like to think about it, there are numerous ways that people can be harmed at the hands of other people or companies. The example above shows us how negligent drivers can cause us to be injured. Often, we find that drunk or distracted drivers are major contributors to roadway injuries. They can harm other vehicle passengers as well as pedestrians and bicyclists.
People are also commonly injured in slip and fall accidents that happen due to the negligence of a property owner or store employee. We know that premises accidents are common, but we also know that most of them are preventable.
Every year, thousands of people are injured due to faulty products. Whether it is something we use or consume, there are times when companies sell products that cause us harm. Sometimes it is a problem with the way the product is designed or manufactured. Other times it is improperly labeled.
Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in this country and can cause major harm. Whether it is a surgical mistake, a medication error, an infection, or some other medical error, healthcare professionals should be held responsible for their mistakes.
