Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer
In this case, several questions need to be resolved in order to determine what exactly caused the crash. Was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs a factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Did the driver of the Nissan involved show recklessness or negligence at some point?
Once the investigation process is over and it proves that a negligent party has neglected the safety of other people on the road, the surviving family of Mr. Roman Barron may have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit seeking a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income, and loss of love and companionship.
Faustino Gomez and the other injured parties who are proven not responsible for the tragic crash will be entitled to a personal injury claim that includes a compensation for hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
