The Toledo injury attorneys at the Charles Boyk Law Offices have seen nearly every type of accident case under the sun, but some cases are real stinkers, literally.
In a recent case, 47-year-old Franklin Santana confronted 27-year-old Tyrik Harris after Harris' Chihuahua “used the bathroom” in his yard. According to reports from law enforcement officials, Harris was carrying a gun. When the argument turned physical, there was a struggle and gun shots were fired, ultimately killing Santana. He was shot at least three times in the head and neck.
Although police are calling the incident a "senseless tragedy" and Harris has been charged with murder and currently sits behind bars, tragic situations such as these can leave the victim's family in a haze of personal pain, as well as legal and financial overhaul. That's why anytime one is involved in an accident that results in a fatality, it is essential for the vicitm's family to contact an experienced Ohio wrongful death lawyer immediately.
