Friant Car Accident on Millerton Road February 7

Woman Seriously Injured in DUI Crash Near Millerton Lake, February 7

FRIANT (February 10, 2018) – An alleged DUI crash near Milestone Lake left a woman seriously injured Thursday evening, according to The Fresno Bee.

The collision took place just before 7 p.m. on Miller Road near Winchell Cove Road.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said two vehicles collided on Miller Road after one of the drivers involved crossed into the opposing lane and struck the other.

A 71-year-old Fresno woman driving a car involved was hospitalized with major injuries. Her name and condition at this moment remained unknown.

Although CHP did not immediately confirm who among the two motorists veered and caused the wreck, a person was reportedly arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol following the crash. The suspect, who was going east at the time of the incident, has been identified as 32-year-old Jose M. Santos.

The Merced man was taken to Community Regional Medical Center with moderate injuries.

Meanwhile, authorities are still investigating the collision.


Personal Injury Lawyer

Most auto accidents are preventable for as long as motorists practice road safety measures and obey the traffic laws. In this case, Mr. Jose M. Santos is accused of drunk driving which is considered as a serious crime throughout the state. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs has corresponding criminal penalties, and the kinds of the charges to be filed depend on factors including the prior convictions, if there are any, of the alleged DUI driver, the severity of the offense, the level of intoxication and the injuries caused to another individual.

It is apparent that Mr. Santos has been negligent and caused the collision that led to the serious injuries of the woman involved. The victim will have then the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party, seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages and pain and suffering.

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.
