Brentwood Head-on Crash at Diablo and Chestnut; 1 Dead, 2 Injured1 Dead, 2 Injured in Head-on Collision

LOCATION: Brentwood

DATE OF ACCIDENT: Monday, October 1st

October 2, 2018- According to the East Bay Times, one person was killed and two others were injured after a head-on collision yesterday afternoon on Chestnut Street at Diablo Lane.

According to California Highway Patrol officials, the crash occurred at precisely 3:21 p.m. involving two vehicles.

One vehicle was noted to have overturned while the other incurred significant exterior damage leaving both the driver and passenger of that vehicle trapped inside.

Both the driver and passenger in one of the vehicles suffered serious injuries including one of the victims who was airlifted to John Muir Medical Center.

Meanwhile, the driver of the overturned vehicle, a male, sadly was pronounced dead at the scene.

At this time, CHP is currently investigating the fatal collision and has yet to release any additional information in regards to the incident itself and what exactly took place.

*The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their family and friends during such difficult times.

A forensic examination of both vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, which driver had the right-of-way, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by each vehicle such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the family of the fatal victim, as well as those injured, may have the right to pursue a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit respectively pending the investigation. Wrongful death and injured accident victims may seek recompense for damages including funeral costs, loss of companionship, medical expenses, hospital bills, and pain and suffering.

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.

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.
