LODI (March 13, 2018) – A fatal traffic collision took place along Highway 12 near the Interstate 5 Freeway Tuesday, according to FOX 40 News.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said a black Nissan Murano was going west on Highway 12 when its driver crossed over the double yellow lines in an attempt to pass other vehicles.

Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer

Based on the news report, it appears that the driver of the SUV may be held responsible for the crash. Several questions then need to be resolved in order to determine what exactly caused the deadly crash. Was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs a factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Why did the 27-year-old female motorist cross over the double yellow lines? Was she reckless or negligent at some point?

Once the investigation is over and it proves that a negligent party has neglected the safety of other people on the road, the family of the deceased and the injured victims may have the right to pursue a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, hospital bills, loss of future income, pain and suffering 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.

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.
