Wrongful Death

Another Pedestrian Fatality

Another pedestrian accident ends in a fatality. This one happened in Hollywood. A woman was walking along Highway 162. A driver tried to pass another vehicle and hit the pedestrian, killing her at the scene. The accident is still under investigation.

We don’t know all the circumstances in this case. The pedestrian could have been walking the wrong way, or the car could have overcorrected one way or the other to cause the accident. Regardless, the family of this young woman is going to be seeking answers, and possibly a civil suit as well. It all depends on what happened.

The best thing you can do to improve your chances in an accident suit is to follow the law at all times. Breaking the law, even in small ways, can have a dramatic effect on how a judge or jury decides a case. For example, if a pedestrian is walking the wrong way on the road, or was wearing dark clothing at night, that could play into the hands of the driver. However, if the driver broke the law by speeding, swerving recklessly, or crossing against a light, that helps the pedestrian’s case.

You need a skilled attorney to go through the circumstances and build a case. The attorneys at Howell & Christmas are ready to help you. Call our law offices today for a free no-obligation consultation about your case. We’re ready to help.
