BUENA PARK: 2 Women Interrupt Tagger, Injured in Hit-and Run Crash

hit and run crashBUENA PARK, Calif. (Oct. 19, 2016) –– Two women were struck by a hit-and-run driver Tuesday night after they interrupted a tagger vandalizing a stop sign. The crash took place at Fullerton Avenue and Artesia Boulevard, according to the Orange County Register.

The collision took place about 10 p.m. after the two women were attempting to stop the male tagger from vandalizing public property, the Buena Park Police Department said.

One of the victims identified as Norma Diaz told authorities she was driving her Jeep with a female passenger and witnessed a man climbing onto a stop sign. He was attempting to  vandalize it with spray paint, she said. When he saw the victim’s car pull up, he allegedly threw the can of spray paint at the Jeep. He then got into a van and that’s when Diaz pulled up next to it to take down its license plate. Her passenger got out of the Jeep and was struck by the van as its driver reversed. Diaz also got out and confronted the driver who once again reversed and she fell over.

Paramedics responded and took the passenger to UC Irvine Medical Center for treatment of undisclosed injuries. Diaz suffered cuts on her head and arms.

The hit-and-run driver fled the scene and police are searching for the suspect. The Buena Park Police Department is heading up the investigation and can be reached at (714) 562-3902.

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. 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.
