SAN DIEGO (February 3, 2018)Aaron Kim, 22, of San Diego, was killed and five people were injured Friday, Feb. 2 in a collision at Miramar Road and La Jolla Village Drive, according to the San Diego Medical Examiner.

The collision was reported at 11:42 p.m. when a 15-year-old driver in a silver Toyota sedan was traveling at a high rate of speed down Miramar Road. She reportedly veered to the left and hit the center divider in the roadway just before 6:30 p.m. The vehicle went airborne over the median, overturned and slid head-on into the front of a minivan carrying two adults and two children. Kim, who was an unrestrained passenger in the silver car, was ejected from the vehicle.

Kim was transported to Scripps La Jolla Hospital where he later died of his injuries. The teenage driver suffered a broken leg and lacerations and was also taken to a hospital.

Firefighters had to extricate the two adults from the minivan, but bystanders helped the two children out of the vehicle before they arrived.   The woman who was in the minivan suffered at least one fracture and the children suffered minor injuries.


San DiegoAccident Investigation

An investigation into this collision is underway, but it appears that the teenage driver will be held liable for this collision.

If a negligent driver has caused a collision that left you injured or caused the death of a loved one, it’s up to you whether or not to file a civil lawsuit or personal injury or wrongful death claim.

It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim even when they know their insured is responsible. They may also make an offer to settle for far less than the full amount owed.

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. 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.
