A woman was killed in a Los Angeles car accident on Tuesday, when her vehicle apparently pushed past the concrete barrier of a parking structure and fell approximately four stories to the ground. The car accident in Los Angeles happened on Nebraska Avenue, in the Sawtelle area of Los Angeles.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the car pushed past a concrete barrier before plunging from the parking structure and landing upside down. The driver of the vehicle, a woman, was killed. No other injuries were reported.
The family of the woman killed should hire a Los Angeles personal injury attorney to investigate whether there was any negligence involved in the potentially wrongful death of the woman. The building site should be examined to see if it was built up to code for parking structures. It will also be necessary to try to figure out why the vehicle collided with the exterior of the structure in the first place.
The Los Angeles injury attorney can research to what extent the walls of a parking structure are supposed to be able to stop a moving vehicle. Accident reconstruction experts can determine how fast the vehicle was moving and why it was able to push through the wall. If the structure was designed negligently, the owners of the structure and/or the building constructors might be held responsible for the Los Angeles wrongful death of the woman.
