A Los AngelesPolice Department officer was reportedly on the scene of the accident and was able to help the victims of the crash. The cause of the crash had not been determined and was still under investigation and it was not stated whether alcohol may have been a factor.
The four pedestrians injured in this car accident may be interested in pursuing personal injury compensation regarding this accident. Personal injury compensation may be able to help them with their medical bills, wages lost due to medical treatment and even future lost income, if applicable. They may also need to seek compensation for future treatments that they will require due to their current injuries if this is necessary. If the person in critical condition dies as a result of their injuries, their family can open up a wrongful death claim against the driver to pursue compensation for the loss of their life as well as any medical costs and associated costs.
