A recent Los Angeles car crash ended with one dead, four injured and a seriously damaged restaurant. According to Eater, “A vehicle hit a motorcyclist near the intersection of Silver Lake Boulevard and Effie Street, overturning the car and completely sheering the tree in front, killing one unidentified person and injuring several others.” One employee of L&E Oyster Bar was uninjured and upstairs when the fatal car crash happened and worked to attempt to put out some of the flames.
Los Angeles is slowly re-opening and while restaurant car crashes are not normal, deadly car accidents happen all the time in LA and throughout the country and we will likely see an increase in them as more people get back on the roads. Here’s a look at some of the questions that can surround a Los Angeles fatal car crash like this:
- Is the restaurant responsible for paying for injuries and death?: The only scenario in which a restaurant would hold some or all the responsibility is if they played a role in causing the accident? Here, that was certainly not the case as really they were just where it came to an end. More commonly, restaurants may be found responsible for personal injuries while on their premise like slip and falls; although many restaurants and stores have been held responsible for parking lot injuries or deaths that their carelessness played a role in causing.
- Who pays for a deadly car accident?: A Los Angeles wrongful death car accident is an absolutely tragedy and no amount of money will make things better but it can help cover expenses and more. These cases can be worth a lot of money when handled correctly. Payment is usually covered by the auto insurance policy of the responsible party.
