We wish to extend our thoughts, prayers, and condolences to the family and friends of Jose Equihua during this extremely difficult time. Pedestrian accidents happen far too often on our roadways and we want you to understand that you have rights if you lost a loved one in one of these accidents.

When a loved one’s life has been taken too soon, you might experience the financial stress while you are dealing with the grief associated with the accident. If you have lost somebody due to what you believe is the negligence of another party, you might have the right to bring what is known as a wrongful death claim, which is a claim that helps individuals compensate on behalf of their loved one for aspects like medical bills, lost wages, funeral costs, and more.

At the Los Angeles Injury Group, we are here in your time of need if you have lost someone close to you in a pedestrian accident and need our help. Call us today for more information to find out how we can aid you at 310-954-7248.
