Tragic Three-Vehicle Collision in South Los Angeles Leaves One Girl Dead, Nine Injured [Los Angeles, CA]

Los Angeles, CA (July 6, 2024)- A tragic Three-Vehicle Collision in South Los Angeles resulted in the death of a 12-year-old girl and left three other minors and six adults injured on Friday evening.

The accident occurred in the 600 block of East Century Boulevard, near Avalon Boulevard, at approximately 6:15 p.m., according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange.

Emergency responders rushed to the scene to assist the victims. Among those involved was a woman who required extrication from her vehicle. She was transported to a nearby hospital in serious condition.

Nicholas Prange reported that five other adults were taken to hospitals in fair condition, while the three other juveniles were admitted in moderate condition. Tragically, the 12-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene. Her identity has been withheld pending notification of her next of kin.

In the aftermath of such a tragic incident, the victims and their families may be entitled to various forms of compensation.

This compensation can cover a range of losses and damages, including but not limited to medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, and funeral costs. Medical expenses can be particularly substantial, especially for those who sustained serious injuries requiring long-term care or rehabilitation.

Pain and suffering compensation is designed to address the physical pain and emotional anguish experienced by the victims. Emotional distress damages can also be significant, especially for minors who may face long-lasting psychological impacts from the accident.

Additionally, if any of the injured parties are unable to work due to their injuries, they may be entitled to compensation for lost wages. In the tragic case of the 12-year-old girl, her family may seek wrongful death damages, which can help cover funeral and burial expenses and compensate for the emotional pain and loss of companionship they are enduring.
