View a larger map on the Chesapeake, VA, intersection where a pedestrian lost his life after being run over by a Ford F-150 pickup truck.
The investigation into the wreck has just begun, but even if no criminal charges are brought against the truck's driver, he may still face some liability if the deceased pedestrians family files a wrongful death claim. While few of the early details point to recklessness by the driver, evidence of negligence such as distracted driving do to cell phone use could turn up.
Deciding to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit is never an easy decision, but when their grief has abated somewhat the victim's family should consider contacting a Virginia personal injury attorney to discuss their legal options.
