Driver Killed, Passenger Hurt in Solo Crash on Sheldon Lake Drive

 Gerard Aguilar Fatal Crash Sheldon Lake Drive in Elk Grove ELK GROVE, Calif. (August 11, 2022) — Gerard Martin Aguilar, 21, of Cameron Park, died and his passenger suffered major injuries in a solo-vehicle collision Tuesday on Sheldon Lake Drive south of Grant Line Road in Elk Grove.

The crash occurred about 2:24 a.m. on August 9th in the South Sacramento area, according to the California Highway Patrol and Sacramento coroner.

The Cameron Park man was driving a 2021 Honda Civic southbound on Sunrise Boulevard towards Grant Line Road, according to Fox 40 News.

The vehicle also hit a wooden fence and a parked car at 11700 Sheldon Lake Drive, the CHP report said.

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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
