Fatal Pedestrian Accident in Los Angeles
By California Law, drivers are required to decrease speed and provide the right of way to pedestrians in designated areas along roadways. As the reports indicate, officials are unclear if the victim had been walking in a marked or unmarked zone near 110.
As part of the ongoing investigation, forensic teams will inspect the Jeep and examine photos of the crash site to determine if mechanical issues or system failure caused the driver to lose control. Likewise, factors like DUI, recklessness, and distracted driving will also be taken into consideration.
Depending on the final results of the case, the members of the deceased victim’s family can potentially file a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver and, ultimately, receive compensation for unfortunate circumstances including funeral expenses and the tragic loss of a loved one.
