Oakland Wrongful Death Attorney

It is forbidden by law in California to leave the scene after causing or being involved in an auto accident regardless of whether or not there are injuries. A hit and run motorist who causes serious bodily injury to another motorist or pedestrian or results in death will be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony. Depending on the circumstances, a hit-and-run suspect will receive a much harsher sentencing pending the nature of a specific incident.

For this incident, the hit-and-run motorist will be charged with a felony hit-and-run and vehicular manslaughter. When there is confirmed negligence or wrongdoing on behalf of a driver especially following a hit-and-run collision, family members of the deceased victim, as well as those injured and hospitalized will be entitled to wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits respectively against the suspect seeking compensation for damages including funeral costs, medical expenses and hospital bills, lost future income, pain and suffering, and loss of 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.

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.
