Vacation Turned Tragedy

On Behalf of | Mar 29, 2019 | Wrongful Death

It is hard not to be discouraged by the world when the news is constantly bombarding us with horrific images and tales of violent behavior. It is hard to ingest this news because you want to feel safe and loved. Yet, how can you when there are wars and famines? Often in times of need, you turn to your family. You look to them for comfort and peace of mind. Sometimes, when the world gets too much, you just need a vacation with your family. What hoped to be a long-lasting memory of a family gathering in Disneyland turned tragic when the loss of a small child rocked the family’s reality.

If you or a loved one is suffering from the loss of a loved one due to the negligence of some person or party then our California wrongful death attorneys at Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation are here to tell you that you are not alone. There are multiple reasons our judicial system allows civil suits. One reason is to ensure that accidents that result in death never happen again. Our California wrongful death attorneys can’t bring your loved one back, but we can make sure that whoever is responsible is held accountable.

The Loss Of A Child

Losing someone of any age is tragic. But there are certain ages that are more understandable than others. For example, if someone lives into their 90s and passes then you know they have lived a full life. If someone dies in the 20s it is hard to believe because their life was just starting. However, there is a special kind of mourning for children who pass away.

The Martinez family traveled from Las Vegas for a fun Disneyland vacation when the unthinkable happened. Little Stephanie Martinez was only 3-years old when she died. The story goes she found a way out of the hotel room while her mother was taking a shower. She then climbed the railing and tried to reach out to her family who was five stories down and sitting in the courtyard. The family is filing a wrongful death suit against the hotel claiming that they created a dangerous and unsafe environment for the three-year-old to be able to climb over the railing as she did.

The lawsuit is still in progress, so not much information can be found on the case. However, what can be known is that if a death results from the negligence of a person or party then justice needs to be served.

What To Expect

Since we don’t know what is going to happen to the Martinez family, our California wrongful death lawyers can tell you if you follow through with this kind of lawsuit then you are letting the responsible party know that they will be held responsible. Our law firm has the right resources and tactics to make sure that your story is heard and your loved one is respected.
