This is a tragedy.  Lawsuits alleging a dangerous condition of public property are tough and require a showing that the government entity (in this case the City of Long Beach) knew or should have known that the area was dangerous.  This can be shown by examining the accident history of the area.  When successful, these claims not only provide compensation for the victim’s family but, usually prompt improvements in public infrastructure that make future incidents less likely.  This makes us all safer!
