Pedestrian Determined to Be at Fault for University City Collision

San Diego Police has determined that the 59-year-old pedestrian struck by a car in University City yesterday morning was at fault for the collision.

The pedestrian accident occurred at the intersection of Nobel Drive and Genesee Avenue, and was reported at about 5:37 am.

The pedestrian sustained possible head trauma and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Luckily the pedestrian has health insurance with personal injury protection coverage.

Otherwise his assets may take a hitting from his medical treatment.

It looks like his personal injury claim will be denied if he decides to file it against the driver.

Police deemed that the pedestrian is the one at fault for the accident and the driver was not cited for any infraction, which is strong proof that the driver was not negligent at the time of the accident.

The lawyers of the insurance company that represent the driver will pound on those facts which would not be very good for the pedestrian’s case.

He could still try to talk to some car accident attorney and see if they could find another legal angle to which he can file a personal injury claim.
