Fatal Pedestrian Accidents and California Wrongful Death Laws

Mission Viejo Wrongful Death Lawyer

When you lose someone you love when they are struck by a car you need an experienced Mission Viejo accident and injury attorney with proven expertise in fatal pedestrian accidents and California wrongful death laws.  My name is Rivers Morrell and I have more than 40 years of experience in fatal pedestrian accident cases and the trials which often accompany them.  It is more than enough of a shock to lose someone you love.  Our clients have no words for the anger, frustration and the feeling of hopelessness they felt when the responsible insurance companies tell them their loved one “contributed to” or was in any way responsible for the accident.

I have had to fight these battles at trial, and have a proven track record of success explaining these cases to a jury in a manner which helps them to see what truly happened and who is ultimately responsible and accountable.  In one specific case, we represented a young man who was riding his skateboard across a cross walk at night.  The insurance company of the driver who hit him alleged the victim was crossing on his board against a red light, and that their driver had the green light.  Through effective investigation and accident reconstruction we were able to clearly prove our client had the green light and the driver of the car simply disobeyed the red light resulting in the accident.

When you lose someone in a fatal car crash or pedestrian injury caused by another’s negligence it is known as a “wrongful death” in California.  Your family can hold those responsible financially accountable for the loss of your loved one, and the time which has been taken from your relationship.  California law recognizes the substantial loss of a spouse as well as the child who will no longer have the love, guidance and support of their parent.

You need a proven attorney with extensive experience in fatal pedestrian accidents and California wrongful death laws to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your family.  I invite you to review the recommendations of our clients and the legal industry and contact us or call (949) 305-1400 for a free consultation.  There is no cost to you or your family out of pocket as we work on a contingency fee basis.
