Daniel Weltin, a San Leandro wrongful death attorney, shares some thoughts following this tragedy and the investigation process that will follow.
“An incident is considered a wrongful death when either a person or entity commits a wrongful or negligent act resulting in a person’s death. When vehicle accident fatalities result from unsafe driving, aggressive or distracted driving, speeding, or driving under the influence, family members are usually left with the option to pursue a civil action against the responsible motorist. A negligent party may also face criminal charges depending on the circumstances and nature of the crash.”
