kettleman city fatal accident at brown street and racine avenueKETTLEMAN CITY (June 29, 2016)- According to the California Highway Patrol, a fatal accident between a bicyclist and a driver Wednesday morning in Kings County.

The incident was recorded to have taken place at 6:05 a.m. at the intersection of Brown Street (Highway 41) and Racine Avenue.

The bicyclist was initially thought to have been injured but was declared dead within minutes of the collision.

In an article by The Fresno Bee, Kings County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased as 53-year-old Juan Manuel Rodarte, of Kettleman City.

CHP said Rodarte was riding his bicycle north on Highway 41 when he was struck by a northbound car from behind. The impact threw him into the gravel.

The driver, Omar Hildago, made an unsafe right turn and drove onto the gravel shoulder, hitting the cyclist. He reportedly stayed following the crash.

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.
