SAN DIEGO (December 19, 2017) – The pilot who survived the plane crash last December 9, Saturday, has been identified as Josh Reikes, of Torrance.

According to the Daily Breeze, Reikes was the operator of the single-engine Beech B36 Bonanza plane that crashed into a home in Clairemont neighborhood, a few miles from the airport.

Reports indicated that an unspecified mechanical problem occurred prior to the tragic incident. As per the article, Reikes took off from Montgomery-Gibbs Executive Airport in San Diego just before 5 p.m. and quickly reported catastrophic engine failure.

The extent of injuries sustained by Reikes in the crash was not disclosed, but medical personnel at least mentioned that he is still recovering from injuries.

Investigators learned that Reikes tried to land the 1995 Beechcraft Bonanza in a school field, but missed and crashed into a house.

His two passengers died in the accident. They have been identified as 46-year-old Michael Zareski, and 50-year-old Robert Stelling.

Reikes began working at Sun Country Airlines in October. Before being hired by Sun Country, he worked at Compass Airlines for nearly two years.

At this time, detectives are still working on determining the precise cause of the plane crash. It was not immediately disclosed if the involved plane’s listed owner, Altitude Aviation Inc. in Hermosa Beach, California, is cooperating with the ongoing investigation.

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.

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.
