Jorge Leo Hernandez Fatal Apple Valley Crash Highway 18 Near Navajo RoadFatal Rollover Crash on Hwy 18; Police Searching for 2 Men Who Fled

APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (August 9, 2018) — Jorge Leo Hernandez, 44, of Apple Valley, has been identified as the man who died in a collision Saturday night on Highway 18, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner.

The collision took place about 10:07 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Highway 18, just east of Navajo Road.

Hernandez was one of three occupants in a 1989 Jeep Cherokee that overturned in the roadway.  The two other men got out of the vehicle and fled the scene after the collision.  Meanwhile, Hernandez was pronounced dead at the scene.

It’s unknown at this time whether police ever located the two men who fled after they searched the area with a helicopter after the collision.

The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) is investigating the incident.

Accident Investigation

At this time, we do not know all the facts about this case.  It’s unknown whether or not Mr. Hernandez was a passenger or driver of the Jeep.

We extend our heartfelt prayers to his family at this difficult time. 

In a case such as this one, there could be  criminal charges filed against the at-fault driver if they fled the scene after a fatal crash. The family of the victim who died would have grounds to file a wrongful death claim to recovery their many losses. There could also be multiple parties responsible for this collision including an employer, an auto manufacturer or a government entity.

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.
