Deadly Car Accident in Los Angeles

Los Angeles can be a dangerous place for motorists. With a complex system of freeways and congested traffic, it is common to see accidents on our local roadways. In many instances, car accidents are caused by careless and reckless drivers. These drivers are involved in collisions when they fail to follow traffic laws. Speeding, impairment, distraction, and more can cause major crashes to occur in an instant. Every crash must be closely investigated by police in order to determine exactly how it occurred.

There is nothing more devastating than the loss of a loved one following a car accident in Los Angeles or the surrounding areas. This is especially true if your family member was killed by a negligent driver in a crash that was not their fault. When a fatal accident occurs, family members often wonder if there is anything that they can do to protect their legal rights. Under California law, there may be an option to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. In this case, loved ones can file on behalf of their relative.
