7 Killed and 5 Wounded after 5.7 Earthquake Hit Turkey

More than 1000 Houses in 43 Villages were Destroyed


At least seven people were killed and at least five others were wounded after 5.7 earthquake hit Turkey on Sunday morning.

The Disaster and Emergency Management Authority said three of those killed in the accident were children. More than 1066 houses in about 43 villages were destroyed in the earthquake.

The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said the quake had a depth of 5 km.

Rescue teams have been dispatched to the affected region.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
