Ex-MLB Player Sued for Wrongful Death

Former major league baseball player, Jim Leyritz, has been sued for wrongful death. This stems from an accident in December that left a 30-year-old woman dead, and Leyritz charged with DUI manslaughter and DUI property damage. Leyritz allegedly ran a red light and plowed his Ford Expedition into a Mitsubishi Montero, driven by Fredia Ann Veitch. Veitch was ejected and died at Broward General Medical Center. She was leaving her job as a bartender to return to her family. Leyritz bonded out of jail after being held for nine hours and has pleaded not guilty to all charges, but had a BAC of .14 above the legal limit of .08. He has also admitted that he was driving the car.

The suit, filed by the family of Veitch, seeks at least $15,000 in damages. The Veitch family attorney, Howard L. Pomerantz, stated, "Leyritz is personally guilty of intentional misconduct and/or gross negligence." Veitch was allegedly driving over the limit as well, but Pomerantz said her condition will have "no bearing" in the wrongful death suit.

If you have been injured, or lost a loved one, due to the negligence of someone driving under the influence, please contact an experienced injury lawyer in your area.
