The investigation into this collision is underway and there are certainly many unanswered questions about what happened. It’s unknown who is responsible for this man’s death. What we do know is that pedestrians typically have the right-of-way in the roadway at all times.

There are many steps that should be taken following a collision to ensure your legal rights are protected, but this can vary depending on the circumstances. An injured person should seek out immediate and ongoing medical care until they are completely better.  If someone has died, a wrongful death claim may be pursued by surviving family members against those responsible and or their insurance companies.

Keep in mind that there are times when a government entity or an employer of an involved motorist that may share responsibility for an accident. All responsible parties can be identified during the investigation.
