As a personal injury lawyer I offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. In my line of work, I am familiar with accidents of this nature and I advise you never to leave the scene of an accident. If you veer off the side of the road do not panic and overcompensate your steering. When behind the wheel always prepare for the unexpected to occur and leave yourself a way out in case of emergency. If you or a loved one were hurt in an auto crash, speak with a car accident attorney Los Angeles to discuss your legal options.
