Dayveonna Polk, 3, Killed Merced Crash; Issac Maldonado Arrested, Hit-and-run and Manslaughter Charges

Hit-and-run Driver Who Killed Dayveonna Polk Faces Manslaughter Charges

The child was allegedly struck by the suspect’s vehicle Monday night  as she walked in a crosswalk with her mother and three other children at W 18th and “R” Street in Merced. Dayveonna was airlifted to a hospital where she died of her injuries. Maldonado allegedly fled the scene without stopping to help the victims.

The Merced Police Department booked the suspect into Merced County Jail.

Merced Fatal Crash Investigation

Police will continue to investigate this collision and piece together what happened. What we know so far is that the pedestrians had the right-of-way over the vehicle. The driver fled and will face charges for his actions.

However, regardless of who is deemed to be at fault, the insurance companies will often make it difficult for a family to obtain fair compensation for all their losses. An experienced personal injury attorney can fight to ensure you are treated fairly.

A hit-and-run driver may face both criminal charges and a civil lawsuit brought by surviving family members. A qualified attorney help ensure a victim or their family are compensated for financial losses as well as obtain justice for the loss of a loved one.

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. 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.
