Fresno, CA – One Man Struck and Injured in Pedestrian Crash on El Captain and Shaw Avenues
Fresno, CA (July 14, 2018) – A local and reliable news source reported an accident Thursday night that left one male pedestrian injured in the vicinity of El Captain and Shaw Avenues. The evening accident occurred when a man who is yet to be identified was struck at the intersection by an unspecified vehicle.
Emergency responders were called to the scene in order to attend to any injured parties. According to medical records that were made available, the pedestrian was the only victim who had reportedly sustained injuries as a result of the accident. The injured pedestrian was apparently rushed to Community Regional Medical Center to be treated, although the extent of the injuries is presently unknown.

We would like to extend our warmest wishes to the victim of this accident in hopes of his full recovery.
Fresno Pedestrian Accident Injury Attorney
Pedestrian accidents are often among the most fatal types simply because of the vulnerability of the victim. It is California law to yield to pedestrians and to consistently be aware of them while driving. Investigators will certainly be looking into right-of-way laws, as well as determining whether or not the driver was impaired, speeding excessively, distracted by something such as a handheld device, or otherwise operating the vehicle in a negligent manner. Depending on the results of the investigation, there may very well be grounds for a personal injury claim to follow.
We at Brady Law Group are proud of our passion for holding negligent drivers accountable for the devastation they cause, although we understand that the decision to file a claim for financial compensation is a personal one that can only be made by the victim.
