Tragic Hit-and-Run Wrongful Death, 81 Year-Old San Ysirdo Victim

A hit and run driver caused the wrongful death of an 81 year-old married San Ysirdo man on February 9, 2014. Alonso Florez Pacheco was struck as he was walking south on East San Ysirdo Boulevard at 6:02 a.m. The vehicle that struck and killed Mr. Pacheco was a black vehicle travelling westbound. After striking Mr. Pacheco, the driver immediately fled the scene, leaving Mr. Pacheco for dead.

In hit and run cases the victim, and in the case of death the victim's family, are left with grief and financial uncertainty.  However, the victim's own auto policy may be a source of financial relief for them.   The victim's family is entitled to damages for the wrongful death of their loved one.

These wrongful death damages, for the victim's family, include the loss of the care, comfort and society for the death of Alonso Pacheco. Additionally, punitive damages against the driver of the automobile may also be available. The reason a court awards punitive damages is to punish and make an example of the driver who struck Mr. Pacheco.

In hit and run cases, the victims' uninsured motorist coverage and medical payment coverage will be available sources of recovery.

There are many other resources that the victim's family may be able to access such as the crime victims fund. 

Additionally, the roadway, area lighting and circumstances of this, and every accident, should be immediately investigated, documented and preserved. Other people and entities may have responsiblity for this tragic accident. 

Experienced legal counsel will make all the difference for the Pacheco family and for others that have been the victim of a hit and run accident. Initiating timely investigation, preserving evidence and coordinating sources of recovery and securing recovery is how experienced legal counsel can help.
