VISTA, CALIFORNIA – On March 25, 2009, 53 year-old Raymundo Ambrosio-Vasquez was struck and killed on Interstate 15. He was tragically struck on I-15 near Rancho Penasquitos Boulevard at approximately 5:00 a.m. Mr. Ambrosio-Vasquez was pulled over on the side of the road for an unknown reason and was standing outside his car when he was hit. According to reports the driver of the vehicle that hit him stopped and called 911, but Mr. Ambrosio-Vasquez was killed by the impact according to the Medical Examiner’s office.
While nothing could ever truly compensate this family for the shock and horror of this news, it is possible to bring a civil lawsuit and recover compensation for the wrongful death of a family member. For example, Mr. Ambrosio-Vasquez was married and lived with his family in Vista, and family members in such a situation are entitled to bring a wrongful death lawsuit.
The attorneys at Berman & Riedel, LLP have successfully pursued many wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of the families of victims who were wrongfully killed. The law provides for compensation of the loss of love and companionship as well as economic losses. When families are struggling to cope with such a loss they ought not make it more difficult than it already is by failing to pursue all available compensation. Attorney William Berman can provide consultation and advice to any families in such a situation.
