Wrongful death lawsuit possible follow California highway crash

Conditions on California highways can change at any given moment. Traffic can slow or weather can worsen making it necessary for all drivers to remain vigilant. Unfortunately, a recent crash could ultimately result in a wrongful death lawsuit.

The accident happened in the westbound lanes of a California highway just after 8 a.m. According to reports, the driver of a sedan slowed as a result of an unrelated collision involving a motorcycle that happened earlier. Unfortunately, reports indicate that the sedan was struck in the rear by a sports utility vehicle. Several other vehicles were ultimately involved in the collision.

Unfortunately, the driver of the sedan, a 46-year-old woman, reportedly passed away as a result of injuries suffered in the collision. A passenger in the sedan suffered major injuries. All three occupants in the SUV were transported to the hospital. While a child was transported as a precautionary measure, the driver and another passenger reportedly suffered major injuries. Three lanes of the highway were closed for several hours due to the accident.

As a result of the accident, a family in California is now left mourning the unexpected loss of their family member. In addition to the grief associated with such a loss, many families are unprepared for the financial ramifications of an unexpected fatality. If a death is the result of another's negligence, surviving family members have the option of filing a wrongful death lawsuit. A successfully presented case could result in a financial award that will help grieving loved ones better manage the consequences of their loss.
