Woman Killed in Pedestrian Crash on Atlantic Avenue in Long Beach

Long Beach, California – An 80-year-old woman died Friday afternoon after a Long Beach pedestrian crash in the 1300 block of Atlantic Avenue near Anaheim Street.

At around 3:13 p.m., the Long Beach Police Department received a report of a woman who had been struck by a 2007 Dodge Nitro, which was trying to exit a parking lot of a stall.

The crash happened at about 3:13 p.m. on March 19.

Reportedly, the accident happened when the woman was squatting in a stall next to the car when the driver reversed out of a stall and drove forward to exit.

The woman was rushed to hospital by the Long Beach Fire Department personnel where she later succumbed to her injuries.

The SUV driver, a 45-year-old man, remained at the scene and cooperated with the authorities.

The name of the deceased was not disclosed awaiting notification of her family.

Alcohol and drugs did not appear to have played a role in the crash.

Police are investigating the incident. Anyone with additional information about the accident is asked to call 562-570-7355.

Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
