COLTON: Death of Sixth Grader Dominick Gallegos Under Investigation

shutterstock_36982489COLTON, California (April 14, 2016) — The death of sixth-grader Dominick Gallegos following a soccer game and or bullying incident on campus at the Ulysses S. Grant Elementary School is under investigation by local police and sheriff’s departments.

The Colton Police Department and San Bernardino County Coroner’s office have reported the preliminary results show no signs of trauma that would have caused the 12-year-old boy’s death, but some witnesses believe the child was injured when he was bullied by another classmate during the game.

The child was rushed to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton after he collapsed and was unconscious at the school during a physical education class where witnesses say he was attacked by another classmate during a soccer game. He later died at the hospital due to unknown causes, but police were told by witnesses the boy had been “stomped and kicked in the stomach” after he allegedly fell on the ground during a soccer game. Witnesses say the child was shaken after the incident as well.

Adults at the school performed CPR on the boy, telling witnesses to leave the field.

Roughly 500 people attended a memorial for the boy on Wednesday night.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the Gallegos family to help them offset costs for the boy’s funeral.

“I can’t imagine the pain the family of this child are going through at this difficult time,” said Attorney James Johnson. “There is  also conflicting information about the cause of his death which makes it even worse. A full investigation will hopefully determine what happened and give them some sort of closure.”

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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
