14 Freeway Accident Wrongful Death
PARRIS obtained a $1,600,000 wrongful death settlement on behalf of the heirs of a man killed in a car accident in Palmdale, California. While our client’s Jeep was stopped on the shoulder of the 14 freeway, they were rear-ended by the defendant. This terrible accident killed both our client and his wife. The husband’s only remaining family was his five sisters, who were the plaintiffs in the lawsuit.
The defendant was an off-duty security guard driving in between inspection jobs. He himself admitted that he was negligently driving 75-79 mph in the far right lane, failing to see the victim’s car until the moment of impact. Our client and his wife were thrown from the vehicle upon impact, landing in the dirt shoulder of the freeway.
The defense blamed our client’s relative (the husband) for pulling over and sticking out into the roadway. However, PARRIS was able to discover facts the clearly indicated Defendant was at fault for the accident. In fact, the investigating officer recommended that the defendant be charged with vehicular manslaughter based on his own description of the accident.
Though no amount of money can make up for the loss of a life, our client’s sisters have received some form of compensation for their terrible loss.
