Sacramento Wrongful Death Attorney

Most traffic accidents involving a hit-and-run driver will eventually face serious criminal charges if someone is hurt or killed in the collision. Under California law, a driver who fails to stop and help a victim is subject to charges of “felony hit-and-run.” In a case such as this one, the family members of the victim will have the legal right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the suspects.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the surviving family members of Jasmine Turpen will be entitled to a wrongful death lawsuit. Victims may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills,  funeral costs, and pain and suffering.
