In April of last year, a fatal car accident on Laguna Canyon Road claimed
the lives of two Southern California men. The incident involved a Tesla
that had veered into oncoming traffic and collided with the men's
vehicle as they were traveling to Laguna Beach during the course of their
work for a landscaping company.
In an effort to help the family of one of the victims secure the justice
and financial compensation they rightfully deserve, Martinian & Associates
is filing a
wrongful death claim on their behalf. In October, Tigran Martinian and our firm's
legal team filed a wrongful death suit against the California Department
of Transportation, Orange County, Laguna Beach County Water District,
Laguna Beach, Laguna Hills, and Irvine.
The claims allege that the agencies and municipalities are at fault for
their failures to adequately maintain landscaping near a traffic sign
that signaled approaching merging lanes. Martinian & Associates is
seeking $50 million in damages on behalf of the family, which will cover
their emotional injuries, loss of financial support, loss of companionship,
and other losses.
Cities and municipalities were named as a precaution in order to determine
who held responsibility for maintaining the roadway landscaping. Investigations
into the case are still ongoing, and Martinian & Associates plans
to fight aggressively on behalf of the victim's family in order to
ensure that the at-fault party is held accountable for their actions.
