2 Dead, 3 Badly Hurt in Highway 24 Crash in Walnut Creek

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (August 13, 2018) — Dakarai Rishon Fagorala, 17, and John Hamed Walizadam, 18, were killed in a suspected DUI crash Sunday morning that also left the driver and two young women injured on Highway 24, at the Mount Diablo Boulevard exit, according to a report by ABC7 News. The crash took place at 4:01 a.m. in the morning.

The young people were riding in a vehicle driven by suspected DUI driver Ramya Ramey, 18, of Antioch.  The Honda Civic reportedly was traveling eastbound on Highway 24 towards the northbound Interstate 680 Freeway when it plunged off a connector ramp down onto Boulevard Circle below. It’s unknown what circumstances led to the vehicle crashing, but this is under investigation.

The two  young men who were in the vehicle died at the scene. The teenage girls, who are from Antioch and Oakley, were taken to  John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. Ramey, a recent graduate from Deer Valley High School, suffered major injuries and was also hospitalized.
The crash remains under investigation by police.

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