fatal ortega highway motorcycle accidentAndre Dang Killed in crash with Gilbert Banuelos on Ortega Highway 74

LAKE ELSINORE, California (Sept. 18, 2017) —Andre Dang, 27, of Buena Park, and Gilbert Banuelos, 24, of La Habra, both died in a head-on crash between their two motorcycles near the Ortega Oaks Candy Store, according to a report by the Orange County Register.

The fatal crash took place about 10:52 a.m. Sunday morning on the Ortega Highway, just west of Lake Elsinore. Police believe that Banuelos was traveling eastbound on a Yamaha sport motorcycle when he allegedly came to the curve in the roadway and veered into the path of Dang who was headed westbound on his BMW motorcycle. Banuelos allegedly crossed over double yellow lines on the pavement.

The crash led to a closure of the roadway in both directions for several hours.

The two riders died within minutes of one another at the scene.

Police continue to investigate the crash.

Those of us at Johnson Attorneys Group offer our condolences to the family of these two riders. 

Ortega Highway Motorcycle Accidents

The Ortega Highway 74 is well-known for fatal crashes, particularly among motorcycle riders. The winding, mountain roads, which stretch between Lake Elsinore and Orange County, are frequented by motorcycle enthusiasts.

The deadliest collisions here are often head-on crashes where one motorist crosses into the path of the other. When this happens, an injured person or the family of a person who is killed, will face not only an emotional toll, but many financial losses. Under California law, surviving victims and family members, may have legal grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit.

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.
