VAN NUYS, Los Angeles (September 7, 2017) — A woman in her 50s was fatally struck by two hit-and-run motorists Wednesday night as she attempted to cross Sepulveda Boulevard at Stagg Street on her bicycle.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the accident happened at about 11:23 p.m. Reports said the woman was struck by a first vehicle, and was ran over by a second motorist. Neither of the involved vehicles stopped at the scene.

A witness flagged down a police officer and brought them to the accident scene where the female bicyclist was found lying unconscious on the road. Furthermore, first responders noted the woman’s bicycle was not found at the site. Police officers suspect that it was pinned underneath the first vehicle, and was dragged away.

Most traffic accidents involving a hit-and-run driver will eventually face serious criminal charges if someone is hurt or killed in the collision. Under California law, a driver who fails to stop and help a victim is subject to charges of “felony hit-and-run.” In a case such as this one, the family members of the victim will have the legal right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the suspects.

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.
