Wrongful death: 3 killed in fiery California car crash

There are many times when a driver and his or her passengers might feel at risk of being involved in a car crash, such as when weather conditions are bad. However, most motorists likely feel relatively safe while stopped, waiting on a traffic light to change. Unfortunately, three people were recently killed in a California crash that could ultimately lead to a wrongful death lawsuit.

The incident happened just after 1 a.m. on a day in late March. According to reports, a red vehicle was at a full stop at a traffic light. Unfortunately, police believe that a white vehicle slammed into the back of it. The red vehicle reportedly burst into flames after impact.

Rescue workers were able to extinguish the flames, but police say three occupants were pronounced dead at the scene. A fourth occupant survived and was transported to the hospital; that victim's condition is unknown. The driver of the white vehicle, allegedly a 27-year-old woman, has since been arrested, suspected of driving under the influence causing injury and vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

Unfortunately, the families of the deceased victims are left mourning the unexpected death of their loved ones. Often those who lose loved ones in such a manner in California choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person believed to be responsible. By doing so, they can not only work to ensure that justice is served but also potentially receive a monetary award that will help them cope with the financial consequences of their loss if their case is successfully presented.
