As a Carlsbad personal injury lawyer, I’m always terribly saddened to learn about accidents that claim the lives of pedestrians, especially when the accidents that caused these fatalities could have been prevented. I hope the family and loved ones of the woman killed in this crash are being able to receive all the support they deserve in this time of pain. My thoughts are with them.
Whenever you or a dear friend is involved in an injury accident that was caused by a neglectful third party, please consider contacting a personal injury lawyer right away to have your case evaluated promptly.
