Santa Paula, California – A teen who was hospitalized with major injuries following a Santa Paula bike accident that happened in the 100 block of West Santa Barbara Street on September 22 has died, according to authorities.

At about 5:53 p.m. September 22, police said the 16-year-old Santa Paula boy was riding his bike when he was struck by a car.

The boy was taken to Ventura County Medical Center with critical injuries. He was then transferred to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where he died on Wednesday, September 30.

The driver who collided with the rider remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.

Police said drugs or alcohol were not believed to be factors in the crash.

The Santa Paula Police Department is investigating the incident.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
