Wrongful Death Lawyer

Motorists are obliged to remain at the scene after being involved in a collision. A driver who flees the area without rendering assistance or leaving a contact information can be subjected to felony hit-and-run charges. Based on this news report, it is apparent that the motorists involved who continued driving after hitting the innocent man will be held responsible for the fatal incident. We hope the alleged hit-and-run drivers will be located soon.

The family members of the deceased in this incident will be entitled to pursue a lawsuit, seeking a compensation for damages incurred in the collision which include funeral costs, and loss of love and companionship.
