Amanda Mayberry Paradise Bicycle Accident Elliot Road and Almond Street

 PARADISE: Fatal Bicycle Accident Elliott Road, Almond Street (Jan. 12)Woman, 40, Fatally Struck by 2 Vehicles

PARADISE, Calif. (Jan. 16, 2018)- A bicyclist identified as Amanda Mayberry, 40, was fatally injured Friday evening following a tragic collision.

Authorities report the collision occurred at precisely 7:08 p.m. at the intersection of Elliot Road and Almond Street.

Per the article, Amanda Mayberry who was a resident of Paradise was rear-ended by a vehicle and thrown into the path of the second car at Elliott Road and Almond Street, according to Paradise police.

The victim, Amanda Mayberry, had been riding her bicycle eastbound before being rear-ended on Elliot Road by Donna Mikel, 70. After being ejected from her bicycle, Mayberry landed in front of a westbound motorist identified as Jessica Raschka, 21.

The 40-year-old woman who was a resident of Paradise was then pinned underneath Raschka’s vehicle and was sadly pronounced dead at the arrival of paramedics.

Neither Raschka or Mikel were injured.

The Paradise Police Department is handling the investigation.

We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of Ms. Amanda Mayberry, as they search for peace and comfort.

Based on this news report, it appears that the 70-year-old driver of the involved vehicle will likely be held liable for the collision leading to the untimely passing of the victim. There are still several unanswered questions here. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the driver negligent in any other way? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the family of the woman, Amanda Mayberry, will likely be entitled to a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault motorist pending the results of the investigation. Surviving immediate family members may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, funeral costs, lost future income, pain and suffering, and loss of love and companionship.

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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
