Family of Car Accident Victim Files Lawsuit Against the City

The family of the victim of a terrible pedestrian accident, that occurred last year, have filed a lawsuit against the city for $75 million dollars. The lawsuit alleges that the car accident, in which their son suffered serious brain injuries which left him in a coma, was caused by the unsafe condition of the road at the intersection where the accident occurred. The car accident occurred when the victim was crossing the street, where as the complaint alleges the city did not provide proper lighting, signage and safety features, and the teenage boy was struck by a car. The city alleges that the pedestrian crossed the street in unmarked area and that the car accident was not the city’s fault. The police report for the terrible pedestrian accident also alleges that the accident was the boy’s fault and that he failed to yield the right-of-way to vehicles posing an immediate hazard. According to The Orange County Register, the woman that hit the young boy did not receive any citations in connection with the accident.
