Leo Cabrera and Blanca Cabrera San Jose Fatal Accident on Interstate Highway 280

Leo Cabrera, 21; and Blanca Cabrera, 24, Killed in Highway 280 Accident

SAN JOSE (April 30, 2018) – A man and his sister were killed after a traffic accident on the Interstate Highway 280 late Saturday night, April 28, according to Mercury News and SF Gate.

Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office identified the victims as 21-year-old Leo Alonso Cabrera and 24-year-old Blanca Luz Cabrera. Both were from San Jose.

As per the reports, California Highway Patrol said the siblings left their black 2005 Hyundai Accent between the two left-most lanes of the interstate after their car crashed on southbound Highway 280.

Brother and Sister Hit by Car in San Jose

As they walked to the center median, a gray 2014 Nissan Altima traveling about 65 mph braked and veered to the left to avoid the Hyundai. The Nissan then collided with the Hyundai and struck the siblings.

Blanca Cabrera remained in the median while Leo Cabrera was thrown over the railing and landed about 30 feet below Highway 87. The brother was taken to Regional Medical Center of San Jose while the sister was rushed to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, where they later died.

Meanwhile, the Nissan also slammed into a 2016 Acura. The driver of the Nissan was hospitalized with minor injuries while the motorist in the Acura was unharmed. The incident remains under investigation.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family members and friends of the victims during such a difficult time.


Wrongful Death Lawyer

A forensic examination of the vehicle and the victims, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine the liability in the deadly accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not the driver of the Nissan Altima was under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not that motorist was distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.

The surviving family of Mr. Leo Cabrera and Ms. Blanca Cabrera may have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit pending the result of the investigation. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, hospital bills, loss of future income, and loss of love and companionship.

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