Wrongful death claim follows overdose at 2015 music festival

Two years ago, a 24-year-old California man attended the Electric Daisy Carnival in another state and never returned home. The young man died that night from a drug overdose. His parents have now filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the promoters of the event who are based in Beverly Hills.

Reportedly, the event was held in searing heat, and over 100,000 people attended the festival. According to the complaint, the parents accuse the defendants of failing to provide sufficient medical staff, based on the attendance figures. The man apparently overdosed on Ecstasy while he was at the music festival.

The parents allege that more than an hour elapsed before their son received medical attention -- which proved to be too late, as he did not survive. Similar circumstances seem to have prevailed at the 2017 Electric Daisy Carnival that took place in the sweltering heat in Las Vegas earlier this month. It was reported that 1,000 people at the festival sought medical attention during the weekend of the event, one of which was a young man who died. The cause of his death is unknown.

Whenever a loved one dies as the result of another party's negligence, his or her surviving family members are entitled to pursue financial relief by filing a wrongful death lawsuit in a California civil court. The plaintiffs will have to present proof of negligence before liability will be assessed. However, the services of legal counsel are available to navigate such a claim on behalf of the plaintiffs. An experienced attorney can also help with documenting the financial losses and emotional damages for adjudication by the court.
