Fatal Accidents in California
When it comes to fatal accidents, California is known for being at the top of the list. Though the rights of others who share the roadways are protected, this does not mean that these accidents do not take place on our roads every year. Every day, drivers fail to look out for the well-being of others on our roads due to distractions, speeding, drunk driving, and a wide variety of other reasons. At this time, the police investigation into this matter is ongoing but, if it is determined that the other party is liable, those who have suffered losses might be able to bring a wrongful death claim for compensation that is owed to them.
