A woman who was involved in a two-vehicle crash on Sunday, October 18th, was finally identified by Kern County coroners. Her name was Valeria Gonzalez Vargas, age 30, and was a resident of Bakersfield. She died several hours after the collision, which happened around Belle Terrace and South Chester Avenue. It is unknown whether the other driver also suffered from injuries from the crash.

What Happens When a Car Accident Victim Dies During Personal Injury Claim Process?

It isn’t uncommon for an injury sustained from a car crash to turn fatal. When this happens, and a personal injury claim has already been filed, what can you do as a family member of the deceased car accident victim? Generally, it is possible to use a survival action claim to continue the personal injury claim. Unlike wrongful death claims, which cover different damages than personal injury claims, you can pursue the same damage claims when using a survival action claim.
