Cesar Duenas Killed in La Mesa Accident on Highway 94 to Lemon Grove AvenueCesar Duenas, 55, Victim in La Mesa Accident

LEMON GROVE (October 18, 2017)- According to the San Diego County Coroner, Cesar Duenas, 55, has been identified as the man fatally injured in a collision Tuesday evening on westbound Highway 94 at Lemon Grove Avenue.

Per the article, the collision occurred at around 6:00 p.m. when Cesar Duenas’s Dodge pickup truck with an 8-foot trailer attached to it suddenly broke down on westbound Highway 94. He phoned a tow-trucking company to send out assisting personnel to help him with his vehicle.

As Duenas waited for the tow-truck driver to load both the vehicle and the trailer onto the truck, a Lexus suddenly slammed directly into the disabled pickup which pushed the trailer directly into Duenas who tragically suffered fatal injuries as he was pronounced at the scene.

Meanwhile, the driver of the tow-truck was injured and transported to a hospital.  His condition is unknown at this time as it was last reported that he remained hospitalized as of Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, the driver and lone occupant of the Lexus was miraculously uninjured.

No further details have been released at this time.

Based on this news report, it appears that it is like that the driver of the Lexus will likely be held responsible for causing the fatal collision leading to the death Mr. Cesar Duenas and injuries to another. There are still several unanswered questions here. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the driver negligent in any other way? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, families of the deceased victim and the injured tow truck driver will likely be entitled to a wrongful death and personal injury claim respectively against the at-fault driver.

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.

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.
