San Bernardino County Wrongful Death Lawyer
Motorists are obliged to stop after being involved in a traffic accident. In this case, it is apparent that the driver will be held responsible for causing the incident that led to the death of the innocent woman involved. Regardless of their reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and is punishable by law, especially if the incident tragically killed another individual. We are hopeful that authorities will soon be able to locate the suspect and justice will then be served.
The surviving family of the deceased has then the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of love and companionship.
