Christine Wilson Visalia Fatal Pedestrian Accident on Walnut StreetWoman, 78, Killed and Christine Wilson Injured in Visalia Pedestrian Accident on Walnut Street

VISALIA (December 10, 2017) – One woman was killed and another person was injured in a pedestrian accident on Walnut Street Saturday morning, according to Fresno Bee.

At approximately 8 a.m., a 78-year-old woman and 51-year-old Christine Wilson were both crossing north on Walnut from the Rancho Viejo shopping center. Then, for reasons still under investigation, an oncoming 2005 Toyota truck struck both women.

Responding medical personnel immediately rendered aid to the pedestrians who both appeared to be hurt. The victims were reportedly taken to Kaweah Delta Medical Centre where the elderly woman sadly succumbed to her injuries. Furthermore, medical records indicated that Wilson is still being treated at the hospital as of late Saturday.

No immediate information was disclosed on the involved driver.

Further investigation is ongoing at this time to determine the precise cause of the fatal accident.


We offer our warmest of thoughts and prayers to the involved parties and their families during such a difficult time.


Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer

Based on this news report, it remained unclear if the involved driver will be held liable for the pedestrian accident that resulted in fatal trauma to an elderly woman, and bodily injuries to Ms. Christine Wilson. California has several right of way laws that apply to the pedestrians. These laws include the obligation of the drivers to exercise due care and lessen the speed of their cars while approaching a pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk.

In this specific case, if investigators finally prove that the involved driver has been negligent and caused the collision, then the family members of the deceased and Ms. Wilson will then have the right to pursue a wrongful death and a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault.

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.

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.
