Kennedy High School Student Killed in Granada Hills Crash
On February 18, 2015, at approximately 3:15 p.m., a 17-year-old boy was killed when he was hit while riding his bicycle in Granada Hills, California. Tragically, the boy was pronounced dead at the scene as the result of his injuries.
Do family members of the deceased boy have ground to file a lawsuit against the driver of the vehicle that hit and killed him?
Based on the facts as we know them today, it is possible that legal grounds to recover damages associated with the boy’s death do exist. Depending upon the outcome of the police investigation the deceased boy’s heir may have a basis for filing a lawsuit against the driver. In a wrongful death lawsuit the injured or deceased party’s heirs may file a civil action to recover damages resulting from their loss.
