The young people were identified as Derek Lee, 22, of San Francisco, who was transported to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center about 12:10 a.m. on Sunday morning.

Alyssa Dominguez, 21, of San Diego, was taken to Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Fontana where she died about 2:10 a.m. on Sunday morning. Roxanne Ngo, 22, of Chino Hills, was taken by ambulance to Loma Linda University Medical Center where she later died early Monday morning at 3:04 a.m.

The event attracted some 146,000 attendees this weekend. There were at least nine people transported by ambulances to local hospitals this past weekend who had been attending the event. Additionally, more than 300 people were arrested for various charges at the event or outside of it. Most of the arrests involved public intoxication. At least one of the arrests involved a person who was bringing mushrooms, marijuana and methamphetamines drugs into the event.

The coroner is investigating what caused the deaths of these three young people who were all in attendance at the music festival. The investigation is looking into whether extreme heat played a role.

The deaths come a year after two teenage girls died in what is believed to be drug overdoses at the Hard Summer Festival held last year at the Fairplex.

Our deepest condolences go out to the families of these three young people who are now dealing with such a painful and preventable loss. There has been much controversy over permitting these types of festivals to operate due to previous deaths at concerts. When someone is injured, whether it’s heat exhaustion or they are suffering from life-threatening drug overdose, paramedics are unable to access these crowded arenas and get patients to hospitals in time to save their life. If this happens, the concert promoter may be held liable for creating a dangerous condition.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
