Oakhurst Fatal Accident
We wish to first extend our condolences to the parties who lost somebody close to them in this horrific crash. The family and friends of the loved ones might be able to move forward with a claim for compensation.
Many people who lose somebody close to them in what they deem a ‘preventable accident’ could be eligible to bring a wrongful death claim for a variety of damages. When you have lost someone in an unexpected and preventable accident, you have a right to ask for damages such as medical bill repayments, loss of companionship, funeral bills, and more.
A variety of accidents ending in fatalities happen every year on California roads. For instance, somebody might have been texting and driving and lost control of their vehicle, traveling over the yellow line. Somebody might have made the decision to get drunk and then get behind the wheel of a car. Maybe they were late somewhere and they were speeding in a zone with a low-speed limit. No matter what the reason, you have a right to compensation for the loss of somebody special in your life.
At the Los Angeles Injury Group, we wish to stand by your side as we help you receive the compensation you deserve. Saying goodbye to your loved one was a difficult time, and now we want to help with your recovery. Call us today at 310-954-7248 to find out how we can help.
