DIAMOND BAR (October 29, 2017) – A fatal traffic collision took place on the southbound 57 Freeway early Saturday morning, according to The Orange County Register.

The accident was reported at about 2:52 a.m., south of Diamond Bar Boulevard.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said a Toyota Corolla was headed southbound on the 57 freeway when the driver suddenly struck and collided with the left rear of a flatbed tow truck. The tow truck driver had been assisting a motorist whose vehicle had become disabled along the right-hand shoulder at the time.

Both the driver of the Toyota and his passenger, a 25-year-old Costa Mesa woman, were ejected as a result of the crash. The Corolla was then hit by a Toyota Tacoma driven by 28-year-old Vincent de la Vega, of Santa Ana.

The woman and the driver of the Corolla, 28-year-old Costa Mesa resident Eduardo Lins Goncalves, were both thrown from their car. The female passenger was pronounced dead at the scene while Goncalves was taken to a trauma center, where he later died.

Meanwhile, CHP affirmed that De la Vega’s Tacoma incurred major injuries to the tow driver who had been assisting who was trying to help the occupants of the Corolla.

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.
