COACHELLA, California (October 7, 2015) —  A mother who was pushing her infant son in a stroller to Bagdouma Park was struck Tuesday night as she crossed Avenue 52 by a suspected DUI driver, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. 

The pedestrian accident was reported at 7:17 p.m.  The suspected drunken driver was traveling westbound on Avenue 52 in a Honda Accord when he allegedly struck the victims who were walking in a marked crosswalk with flashing pedestrian lights activated.  The mother and infant were both taken to a local hospital for treatment of moderate and minor injuries respectively.

The Coachella Police Department responded and evaluated the driver identified as Frank Arechiga, 41, of La Quinta. It was determined he was possibly under the influence of alcohol and or drugs and he was promptly arrested after he was first checked out at a hospital for injuries. He is charged with felony DUI causing major injuries.

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.

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.

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.
