Wrongful Death In Los Angeles During A Traffic Accident Leads To Lawsuit


A wrongful death brings great grief and strife to loved ones and friends, asking questions about what could have happened to cause such a tragedy. When someone is responsible for their negligence, it compounds the pain because it could have been completely avoided, and your loved one could still be with us. At the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach, our Los Angeles death claims attorneys want to discuss a recent wrongful death that occurred here in Los Angeles—a car accident where police should have assisted instead became a place where police acted irrationally and cost a man his life.

What happened in this Los Angeles wrongful death?

In April of 2020, Daniel Hernandez was involved in a five-car crash in Newton, CA. Police were called to the scene, and instead of aiding the victims or helping in any way, they confronted Daniel Hernandez, and from two car lengths away, shot him six times. Daniel Hernandez did not have a firearm or posed a threat to anyone, including the officers. He was merely exiting his vehicle after the car accident when the police opened fire.

Paramedics on the scene attempted to save his life, but he died at the scene.
