 ADELANTO: Joseph Jones Arrested Hit-and-run Crash Palmdale Road and Verbena (Feb. 11)Driver Faces Hit-and-run Charges After Leaving Crash Scene

ADELANTO, Calif. (Feb. 13, 2018) — Joseph Jones, 26, of Adelanto has been arrested on hit-and-run charges for an injury collision early Sunday morning at Palmdale Road and Verbena, according to the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Department.

The collision was reported about 2:20 a.m.

The vehicle left behind after the crash suffered major damage and the driver was still inside suffering from injuries. Paramedics rushed that person to a hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries.

The second vehicle involved fled the scene. Police later were able to locate the car with its driver’s side door wide open and airbag inflated. The driver, later identified as Jones, had fled on foot.

Police arrested Jones, the registered owner of the vehicle, about 8:11 p.m. the same night. He was at his home on Almond Street. He tried to tell police the vehicle was stolen, but police confirmed that was not the case. The suspect was arrested on hit-and-run charges and taken to High Desert Detention Center where he is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

The crash remains under investigation by Deputy Patrick Rangel at Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station, (760) 552-6800.

Hit-and-run Crash Accident Investigation

An investigation into this collision is underway to determine fault. At this time, the suspect driver faces criminal charges for leaving the scene of the crash, however, a civil lawsuit may also be filed by the person who was injured.

If a negligent driver or dangerous condition caused a collision that left you injured or took the life of your loved one, you may have grounds for a 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. This is unacceptable.

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.
