West Sacramento Girl Wakes From Coma
I’m Ed Smith, a West Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. I was very pleased to hear that after being seriously wounded in a drive by shooting a West Sacramento girl wakes from coma. Additionally, she was finally able to return home after a three month hospital stay.
On the night of October 24, 2015, Alize Valadez was nearly killed after being shot in the head as she relaxed in her home located in West Sacramento. She was 13-years-old. Her injuries were severe and she lapsed into a coma. Alize woke from her coma in late December 2016. She was still hospitalized on her 14th birthday on January 1, 2016. Finally, on January 26, 2016, Alize was released from the hospital.
What is Her Prognosis?
Alize’s critical gun shot wound left her unable to speak, walk or eat. She has a traumatic injury team of nurses and doctors helping her. Occupational therapists, speech therapists and physical therapists are also on the traumatic injury team assisting Alize in the rehabilitation process. She is in the process of recovery and doing so at an incredible pace. She has a long journey ahead of her. The family has indicated they are praying for Alize to get back to normal. They are taking things one day at a time.
What Happened to the Shooter?
It has been reported that investigators did not have enough evidence to prosecute a Stockton man who allegedly had been involved in the West Sacramento drive by shooting that injured Alize.
