Fatal Car Accident Highway 4, Old River in Contra Costa-San Joaquin County (Aug. 9)

 Fatal Car Accident Highway 4, Old River in Contra Costa County (Aug. 9) 2-Vehicle Fatal Crash on State Route 4 at Old River

SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY, Calif. (August 9, 2018) — A 24-year-old South Lake Tahoe resident died Thursday morning in a two-vehicle crash on state Route 4 at the Old River bridge, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash took place near the county line between Contra Costa and San Joaquin County.

The crash took place about 8:31 a.m. and prompted a SigAlert for Highway 4. A driver in a 1998 Lexus reportedly “hit gravel, spun out and hit a pickup truck,” the report said. There is a large patch of gravel next to the roadway, just approaching the Old River bridge.  This is likely where the incident took place.

Two flatbed tow trucks were called to remove the damaged vehicles.

The crash remains under investigation by police to determine liability.

San Joaquin County Accident Investigation

At this time, we do not know all the facts about this case. It does appear that the driver who spun out may have been responsible, but it’s unknown if a roadway hazard or mechanical problem was a factor.  The driver may have veered off the roadway and then back onto it. Police are also looking into whether speed contributed to this crash.

We extend our condolences to the family of the person who died in this crash. 

Anyone who is injured or has lost a loved one in a collision due to a negligent driver or drivers, can file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver to compensate them for their financial losses. While this can be done without an attorney, the results are oftentimes lower because insurance companies have the ultimate power without the threat of a lawsuit.

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.
