Tragedy Strikes A Young Angels Pitcher

Angel’s pitcher Nick Adenhart was tragically killed in a hit and run car accident in Fullerton, CA on April 9th after being struck by a drunk driver who ran an intersection at a speed of approximately 50 to 65 miles per hour. The driver fled the scene on foot and was captured by police 30 minutes later. 

In addition to criminal charges, the drunk driver may be subject to a civil suit for wrongful death by the victim’s family. Stephen Jamieson and Stephen Solomon, partners of the law firm, Solomon, Saltsman, & Jamieson, and co-hosts of the live television show, Legal Help Live, say that “it may be possible to file a civil wrongful death case against the driver or the city or state that operated the intersection. This case could not bring back the life of the Angel’s pitcher, but might generate millions of dollars for the family.”
