LOCATION: Lebec, Kern County

DATE OF COLLISION: Friday, September 21st

September 23, 2018Ivan Villafan, 15, of Inglewood, was killed, and two others were injured in a traffic collision on the Interstate 5 Freeway Friday afternoon, according to a local news source.

The driver reportedly veered toward the left side of the road, struck an asphalt curb, then spun towards the right shoulder of the interstate, where it went up a dirt embankment and overturned.

Shortly after 5:45 p.m., medical personnel arrived and immediately attended to the parties found at the scene. As per the article, paramedics pronounced the teenaged boy deceased at the location.

Furthermore, a female juvenile, and the driver were both hurt in the accident. Both parties were reportedly rushed to hospital for treatment of what appeared to be major injuries.

Authorities mentioned a 2-year-old child was also found in the wreckage. The toddler, who was properly installed in a child safety seat, was unharmed in the crash.

The relationship of the driver, and the juveniles involved have not been disclosed thus far.

Detectives handling the case continue to work at this time to determine precisely what triggered the deadly accident.


Kern County Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer

A forensic examination of solo-vehicle involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine exactly how and why the crash happened. Authorities will thoroughly look into how the driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicle such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the family of the deceased teenager will have the right to pursue a wrongful death, while the family members of the injured juveniles may file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault. Wrongful death and injury accident victims may seek recompense for damages including funeral costs, loss of companionship, medical expenses, hospital bills, 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. 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.
