Two people were killed and two others critically injured on November 20th after being struck by a car in the Echo Park area. The silver Mustang struck a street light and a fire hydrant on Rosemont Avenue at Sunset Boulevard before hitting the pedestrians. The driver had to be extracted from his car. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Los Angeles Police Officers are still investigating the cause of the accident. Rosemont intersects Sunset just a few hundred yards from where Sunset abruptly turns left in front of a fire station. Nearby residents of the area where the crash happened describe it as a very dangerous intersection. Some have noted that there are serious car accidents at this intersection every few months.
Your Legal Rights After a Car Accident
A car accident can significantly impact all aspects of your life or the lives of family members after losing loved ones. If you or someone you know has been seriously injured in an accident, it is important to know your rights. You may have legal options against the driver who caused the accident. In some cases, you may even have a legal recourse against the city or state for the defective design of the road where the accident happened.
However, you may not know who the liable party is for your injuries until you consult with an Echo Park car accident attorney. An experienced attorney can help you hold the right party responsible and pay for your:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional and mental anguish
- Out of pocket expenses
Filing a Personal Injury Claim
Filing a personal injury claim will not make the impact of the car accident go away. However, it will help you get the money damages you and your loved ones need to pay for your expensive medical treatments. It may also be an important step in bringing closure to a terrible nightmare.
