Hit and Run and Fatal Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Serving Huntington Beach and Orange County
Huntington Beach is a beautiful beach community in western Orange County with one of the highest pedestrian injury and fatality rates in Orange County. Known as “Surf City USA”, Huntington Beach is an active outdoor lifestyle with heavy pedestrian traffic in and around it’s beaches, resorts, restaurants and shopping and parks. Many visitors and residents enjoy walking along the “Ocean Strand”, an 8.5 mile paved path along the coast next to the beach. Pedestrians have been struck crossing streets and in parking lots in and around the city’s four beaches:
- Huntington City Beach
- Sunset Beach
- Huntington State Beach
- Bolsa Chica State Beach
The downtown shopping and restaurant district in Huntington Beach attracts a lot of daily traffic, and pedestrians crossing the street and navigating the driveways and parking lots are vulnerable to the heavy vehicle traffic in the area.
Fatal accidents involving pedestrians will be pursued as a “wrongful death”. Wrongful death actions in Orange County and California must be brought in a timely manner, and require extensive legal skill and expertise.
