 Fatal Brentwood Crash Highway 4, Marsh Creek Road (April 7)BRENTWOOD, Calif. (April 7, 2022) —  A fatal Brentwood crash involving a large pump truck on Highway 4 happened Thursday morning near the Marsh Creek Road off ramp.

UPDATE: Leilani Lake, 18, of Livermore, identified as driver killed on Highway 4

The two-vehicle collision occurred about 5:48 a.m. on April 7th, just south of Balfour Road in Contra Costa County, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver of an eastbound gray Toyota Corolla collided head-on with the semi-truck in the westbound lanes of Highway 4. The smaller vehicle reportedly veered into the path of the truck. The car suffered major damage on its driver’s side during the collision. “The driver’s side door of the vehicle is completely crushed,” the CHP dispatch said. Leilani Lake, 18, was trapped in the vehicle and reportedly died at the scene, according to the CHP dispatch.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the crash and liability. Witnesses may contact the CHP’s Contra Costa department at 925-646-4980.

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.
