Avrek law Firm is representing the Family of Cesar Andres Medina after a fatal hit and run, and is supporting a crowd-funding appeal on their behalf to support his loved ones.
Irvine, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2015 -- Cesar Andres Medina, a 23 year old skateboarder, was hit by a pick-up truck or SUV while crossing Del Obispo Street, at Paseo Carolina, on Friday evening. Orange County Fire Authority paramedics transported the injured man to a hospital, where he died shortly afterward, according to the Sheriff's Department. Now, a GoFundMe page has been created to help raise money for Cesar Andres Medina with the full support of Avrek Law, the family's lawyers who are trying to seek justice on his behalf.
A suspect has been arrested in connection with the hit-and-run collision: Andrew Christopher Michaels, 19, was taken into custody after being interviewed by detectives and subsequently arrested. His Dodge Ram truck was confiscated by authorities to be processed for additional evidence.
Medina's older sister, an employee of the hospital who was working at the time, described the horror of discovering that the trauma patient was her brother.
"My whole world collapsed, as I did. The nurses I call my friends all came and held me as I cried on the hospital floor," Jennifer wrote of the incident.
Jennifer Medina has created a GoFundMe page in his memory, for loved ones, friends and the community to give donations to his family, struggling in the wake of his loss. Avrek Law Firm has thrown their support behind the campaign to try and get the family back on their feet while they begin the process of pursuing compensation for those who survive Cesar Andres Medina.
A spokesperson for Avrek Law Firm explained, "Avrek Law Firm has nothing but profound respect and admiration for the way in which the Medina family has braved this tragic incident. The creation of a Go Fund Me Campaign to support his family will be essential in the months to come, as we prepare our case and fight to bring the family the compensation they deserve."
