Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in California

We are truly saddened to hear of the death of Andrea Santos.  It is always tragic when a person dies in a vehicle crash, especially a person as young as Ms. Santos.

Police will continue to search for the hit-and-run driver.  When the driver is located, they will face criminal charges for leaving the scene of an accident.  Depending on the results of the crash investigation, the driver may also face civil liability for the crash.

In California, negligence that leads to the injuries of another can be the basis for a personal injury suit.  In such cases, you need the services of an experienced Los Angles personal injury attorney.  A personal injury attorney can help you recover payments for medical expenses as well as lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering.

You should never overlook the benefit of hiring a Southern California accident attorney.  At the Los Angeles Injury Group, we strive to help change each and every client’s life in a positive way.
