Debra Bedard San Andreas Accident; Richard Clarke Arrested

Debra Bedard San Andreas Accident; Richard Clarke ArrestedSan Jose Woman, 58, Victim in Fatal Golf Cart Accident; Driver Arrested for DUI

SAN ANDREAS (June 3, 2017)- According to California Highway Patrol, a woman identified as Debra Bedard, 58, of San Jose, was the victim involved in a fatal DUi golf cart accident Saturday evening.

The incident was reported at roughly 11:00 p.m. when the driver of an EZ-Go golf cart, Richard Clarke, 57, of San Jose, had been operating the cart on Camanche Parkway. He was accompanied by Debra Bedard who had been holding several wine glasses.

Per CHP officials, Clarke made a sudden turn which caused Bedard to fall out of the golf cart onto the wine glass shards which shattered below her.

Authorities confirmed that she sadly died and was pronounced at the scene.

Police officials confirmed that Clarke had been operating the golf cart while under the influence and was subsequently arrested and taken to jail.

No further details have been released at this time.

Police will investigate any accident involving a fatality in an effort to determine liability, but this should not preclude a victim’s family from having their own independent attorney investigate who is responsible for their loved one’s death. Based on this news report, it appears that the driver of the golf cart, Richard Clark, of the gold cart will be held responsible as he faces DUI charges after being arrested for suspicion of operating the golf cart while under the influence. We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing has been confirmed to have been a factor, families of deceased victims including Debra Bedard for this particular incident have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party seeking compensation for damages including funeral costs, lost future income and loss of love and companionship.

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.
