VALLEJO (July 18, 2017)- According to the Times Herald Online, a collision took place Thursday, July 13th, involving a bicycle and a truck where a teen was seriously injured and his father hurt.

Vallejo Police was notified of the collision in the evening on Curtola Parkway just south of Georgia Street.

For unknown reasons, the truck driver struck the bike causing the young teen to get caught on the Chevy before being dragged for some time as he had not been wearing a helmet or any protective padding.

Espinoza remained in the critical care unit in ICU before sadly succumbing to his injuries Sunday stemming from the incident.

Meanwhile, the father was injured moderately and also hospitalized. He has not been identified by name either at this time.

Per the Times-Herald, the driver of the Chevy was uninjured and is being investigated into whether or not he was under the influence which has not been ruled out as the collision remains under investigation as of Tuesday morning.


Wrongful Death Lawyer

Police will investigate any accident involving a fatality or injury in an effort to determine liability, but this should not preclude a victim’s family from having their own independent California-licensed attorney investigate who is responsible for their loved one’s death.  In this particular case, it appears as though the 53-year-old man driving the Chevy will likely be held fully responsible for the teen’s tragic passing and the father’s injuries. California law grants the family of the boy the right to pursue a wrongful death claim if they wish against the responsible motorist where they may seek recompense for medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income and loss of love and companionship.

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.
