It is with great regret that Avian Law Group learned about the deadly pedestrian accident that occurred on the 5 Freeway in Pacoima, California last May 7, 2023. According to reports, a vehicle hit a nude man who was walking near the Laurel Canyon onramp onto I-5 interchange with the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway. The victim died on the scene.
As personal injury lawyers, our hearts go out to the family and friends of the victim during this difficult time. Losing a loved one is already a traumatic event, and it is even more challenging when they pass away from an accident that could have been prevented. We offer our deepest condolences and support to the victim’s loved ones.
Pedestrian accidents can be particularly devastating because pedestrians, unlike motorists, have no protection when a vehicle hits them. As such, they are highly susceptible to severe injuries or death. Investigations into the incident are still ongoing, and it is still unknown whether the victim was crossing the freeway or walking along the shoulder.
At Avian Law Group, we have dealt with many cases involving pedestrian accidents. We understand that no amount of settlement can replace the life that has been lost. However, filing a civil lawsuit against the person responsible for the accident can provide some comfort to the family, especially in securing financial support to cover medical, funeral, and other expenses.
Our team of experienced personal injury lawyers is ready to provide legal assistance to victims of pedestrian accidents in California. We are committed to fighting for justice and ensuring that our clients receive the best possible compensation they deserve.
