Wrongful death: Woman killed in California crash

Most people are aware of the potential harm they could face when driving on the roadways in this country. However, drivers in California likely feel relatively safe while stopped, waiting to make a left turn in a designated lane. Unfortunately, a woman reportedly lost her life in an accident that could ultimately result in a wrongful death claim.

The incident that resulted in the fatality happened on a day in late December. Reports indicate that the victim, a 72-year-old woman, was driving a sports utility vehicle. She was reportedly in a left turn pocket, waiting to make a turn when her vehicle was struck in the rear by a SUV.

She was transported to the hospital but passed away as a result of the injuries suffered in the collision. Four other people reportedly suffered minor injuries in the collision. The driver of the pickup truck was taken into custody, suspected of driving under the influence causing great bodily injury and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. His identity was not released in the immediate aftermath of the accident.

No family in California is prepared for the emotional and financial implications of the unexpected death of a loved one. Unfortunately, medical bills and funeral expenses can quickly become overwhelming for grieving families. To help with these costs, the woman's surviving family members may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person police say was driving the vehicle that struck hers. While a successfully presented claim will likely do little to reduce their grief, it could reduce the stress associated with questions regarding their ability to fulfil their financial responsibilities.
