Woman dies at California hospital

Police say that an 18-year-old woman was struck and killed on April 15 at about 8:15 p.m. while attending the Coachella music festival in California. The woman was taken to Eisenhower Medical Centre where she died about an hour after the accident took place. Police say that the driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash was not injured.

An infant in the vehicle was also unharmed, and authorities say that drugs and alcohol were unlikely to have contributed to the crash. Coachella is an annual music festival held in California over two weekends each April. The woman was struck near the site of the Indio festival that was held in April.

After a car crash that results in death, the family of the victim may be able to seek compensation from the driver through the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit. This is true if the driver acted in a negligent manner that led to the collision. Examples of negligence include the failure to observe a posted speed limit, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or talking or texting on a cellphone right before the accident.

In addition to the overwhelming grief that is attendant to the sudden loss of a loved one, the surviving family members may be suddenly burdened with significant financial obligations. Not only are there funeral and burial expenses to meet, but the decedent may have been a contributor to household finances. An attorney who has experience in these matters can assist in obtaining these and other damages, regardless of whether the driver has been convicted of any criminal charges.
