Actor Anton Yelchin Killed in Studio City Crash in Driveway

fatal crash studio citySTUDIO CITY, California (June 20, 2016) –– Actor Anton Yelchin was killed Sunday when he was struck by his own car in the driveway of his home after the vehicle rolled backwards down a steep incline and pinned him against a mailbox and fence, according to news reports.

Yelchin died of his injuries about 1:10 a.m. at the scene of the crash in the 3800 block of Berry Drive. The cause of his death was stated to be blunt traumatic asphyxia. The vehicle that struck him is a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, one that is under recall for shifting problems by Fiat Chrysler due to 41 reported injuries. The transmission problems were also an issue with the 2014 Jeep Cherokee models.

“This vehicle is known for having various mechanical problems involving its gear shifting system that have resulted in numerous injuries” said Attorney James Johnson. “It’s important that this vehicle is thoroughly inspected to determine whether this was the cause. ”

Attorney Johnson has sued Fiat Chrysler and other manufacturers on many occasions due to manufacturer defects.  The wrongful death lawsuits which need to be filed are normally the only way to make these large corporations change and place the consumers first before their own.

The Russian-born actor moved to the United States with his family as a baby and is perhaps best known for his roles in “Star Trek,” Terminator Salvation,” and “Alpha Dog.”

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.

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.
