Baby dies in tragic California car accident

A Californian family has to come to terms with the death of a seven-month-old baby after she was killed in a crash on a recent Thursday in August. The car accident happened shortly after 8:00 p.m. in the evening. Several other children were also critically injured in the accident, which involved three cars.

According to the reports from the Californian Highway Patrol (CHP), a male driver, aged 18, crossed over the solid double-yellow lines into the path of a female driver. The force of the impact flung the female driver's vehicle to the right of the highway, where it struck a tree. As the young male driver had no control over his car, it hit another car.

It is not clear if any of the adults in the accident were injured, but the critically injured children were all taken to hospitals in the area. CHP was informed by the coroner's office that the baby did not survive. Her death was attributed to blunt force trauma. The accident is currently being investigated, and it is not clear if alcohol or drugs played a role.

California civil law allows for seriously injured victims, or the families of deceased victims, of car accidents caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another person to institute a personal injury and/or wrongful death claim against an at-fault driver. In this case, the family, or families, may decide to file both a wrongful death claim and personal injury claim against the 18-year-old motorist. Financial damages awarded in a successfully litigated claim may assist the families in coping with the unexpected costs and other financial losses resulting from the accident. While compensation cannot change what happened, it can assist in preventing an understandably difficult emotional time from becoming a financial disaster.
