Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “”This was a serious accident that led to critical injuries to a young woman. Automobile drivers are supposed to be aware of their surroundings at all times. When a motorist fails to watch for pedestrians, or travel slowly in areas where they frequent, it could result in an accident.”
