Our Legal Take
As the details of this incident continue to develop, and if the driver of the bus is confirmed to be at fault, the family of Pamela Lewis may elect to file civil a claim for her wrongful death. Based upon its experience and success handling pedestrian claims, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Ms. Lewis’ family should retain an experienced personal injury firm without delay to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the roadways involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
