Car accidents happen every day, injuring and killing thousands of people. When those accidents are caused by the negligence of another person and someone is killed, the families of the victim can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party.
A 27-year old Victorville man, a passenger in a pickup truck, was killed when the driver of the truck struck a pole recently. Reports indicate that upon impact, the victim was thrown from the truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene. No other vehicles were involved.
The accident is under investigation to determine the cause. Investigators are checking to see if alcohol and/or drugs played a part in the fatal accident. Other factors include excessive speed, cell phone use or inattention.
I hope the family of the young victim contacts an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will aggressively pursue a wrongful death claim on their behalf.
