SATICOY, Ventura County (March 11, 2018) – A woman killed after a traffic collision along Highway 118 Friday has been identified as Anita Montiel, according to Ventura County Star.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol affirmed that Montiel was driving a gray Volvo S60 east on Highway 118 when she was struck by a semi-truck. Prior to hitting Montiel, the big rig veered into the opposite lane after it was rear ended by a Chrysler 300 that was headed west at the time.

Wrongful Death Lawyer

A forensic examination of the truck and the two cars involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine the liability in the accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not the drivers of the big rig and the Chrysler were under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not they were distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.

Once the investigation process is over and it proves that negligence or wrong doing played a role in the fatal incident, the family members of Ms. Anita Montiel may have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income, and loss of love and companionship.

Those injured and proven not responsible for the tragic crash will be entitled to a personal injury lawsuit seeking a compensation for hospital bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.

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.

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.
