Wrongful Death Lawyer
Pedestrian versus car accidents are evidently threatening the safety of the people crossing the streets. Aside from factors such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding and distracted driving, the inadequate law enforcement and poor street lighting and road construction may also play a role in the occurrence of such cases that often lead to death of the pedestrians involved.
Once the investigation process is over and it proves that the tragic collision was caused by the negligence of another individual or entity, the family of the deceased may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit seeking compensation for the funeral costs, loss of future income, and loss of love and companionship.
