Fatal Car Accident in Chatsworth

Fatal crashes are reported each day in California. When a deadly crash occurs, it must be carefully investigated by authorities. Unfortunately, many innocent victims will lose their lives when they are involved in a crash with a negligent driver. Speeding, reckless driving, distraction, and impairment all play a role in serious and fatal California car accidents. There is certainly nothing more devastating than the loss of a loved one in an accident. This is especially true if your loved one was killed in a crash that was not their fault.

California law provides a remedy in situations where a loved one has been killed by someone else’s negligence. Under the law, family members may file a wrongful death claim against the driver who was responsible for the collision.
