“The preliminary investigation revealed the pedestrian, who has not been identified, was crossing Artesia Boulevard northbound near a crosswalk on the west side of the intersection,” An officer said in a statement.

Moreover, in a time where an unexpected tragedy befalls such as this one, you may be left feeling powerless. However, it is important to recognize that if your family loses a member in an accident, you may recover damages through a wrongful death suit.
Certainly, a wrongful death suit allows families to hold parties liable for the irrevocable damages they have caused.
Similarly, it is a civil action brought forth by the loved ones of a deceased whose death was caused by the negligence of another party. Significantly, it alleviates the financial burden the death of a relative has generated.
Meanwhile, nearly 1.25 million people are killed in car accidents each year. That means, on average, auto accidents cause 3,287 deaths per day. As a matter of fact, road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death in the U.S. for people aged 1-54.
