When an individual loses their life as the result of another person’s negligence, the family of the victim may have a legal right to hold the party responsible for their loss liable. The Boston Wrongful Death Lawyers with Jason Stone Injury Lawyers explain that a settlement was recently reached in such a case.
According to an article from the Boston Globe, a 20-year-old woman and her 19-year-old friend attended the New England Country Music Festival at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on July 26, 2008. While the women did not have tickets to enter the event, they were able to tailgate in a parking lot on the premises of the stadium, where they consumed alcoholic beverages.
The pair then left the stadium with the 19-year-old driving and the 20-year-old riding as a passenger. On their way home though, the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree, killing both women.
The parents of the passenger later filed suit against the owner of the stadium, Kraft Group, claiming they did not have enough security on hand to uphold a 2007 policy preventing ticketless underage individuals from consuming alcohol.
Jason Stone and his team of Boston Personal Injury Lawyers recognize how difficult it can be to lose a loved one and hope the decision that was reached in this most recent case brings a sense of closure to the family of the victim.
