San Francisco news reports that the family of a 15-year-old girl who died at a rave at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will obtain a settlement from the event's organizer.
According to reports, the family filed a personal injury and wrongful death lawsuit against the event's organizer and the Coliseum after the girl was allowed entrance in the Electric Daisy Carnival. The minimum stated age for the event was 16. The girl collapsed at the rave and later died.
Personal injury lawsuits can arise out of any type of accident. In the event an individual dies as the result of another's negligence, the surviving family members may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit and obtain compensation for their losses. If you have questions concerning personal injury or wrongful death, speaking with an experienced San Francisco personal injury attorney right away is important to protect your rights and determine your next steps.
Although all the facts and circumstances of this case are unknown, it may be possible to maintain a personal injury lawsuit against the owner or operator of a premises – or a third party contractor – where a party fails to exercise reasonable care and an individual is hurt. In these instances, it may be possible to recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages and emotional distress.
Despite the settlement, the event promoter is not admitting any fault in the accident.
