David Ramos, 48, of Crestline Killed in Hit-and-run Pedestrian Accident on Waterman Avenue

SAN BERNARDINO, California (July 20, 2015) — David John Ramos, 48, of Crestline was killed Saturday night in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident in the 3000 block of North Waterman Avenue, a report by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner said.

The man was walking in the southbound lanes of Waterman Avenue when he was struck about 9:40 p.m. by a driver in an SUV or minivan who fled the scene of the crash. Paramedics responded, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The fatal crash is under investigation by The San Bernardino Police Department. Police closed down the roadway  between 30th Street and Marshall Avenue to conduct an investigation.

According to the CHP’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Report there were 217 people killed in traffic accidents in San Bernardino County in 2012, including 91 deaths involving alcohol, 51 pedestrian deaths, 7 people killed on bicycles and 30 killed in motorcycle accidents. There were also 7,942 people killed in the county among all types of crashes.

“This is a tragedy for this man’s family as they cope with news of this fatal crash,” said Attorney James Johnson. “My heart goes out to them as they try to piece together who did this and come to terms with his loss.”

Hit-and-run crashes involving pedestrians are commonplace in Southern California, particularly when there is a driver who is intoxicated or unlicensed or uninsured. When a driver flees the scene of a collision they become a criminal under California law.  The victim or their family, however, has legal rights that must be preserved.

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.

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.
