As of last week, the incident was under investigation by the Irvine Police Department. Car accidents injure or kill hundreds of pedestrians each year in California and many of these fatalities occur in metropolitans such as Orange County.
Most of the car accidents involving pedestrians result from some type of negligence by the driver. In unfortunate cases where the pedestrian is killed as result of a driver’s negligence, his or her family may bring legal action for wrongful death to seek compensation for loss of their family member and the resulting emotional and financial harm.
