Madera County car crash Highway 145 November 11

3 Killed, 2 Injured in Highway 145 Crash Near Madera

MADERA COUNTY (November 12, 2017) – A fatal traffic accident took place Saturday night on Highway 145, east of Madera, according to The Fresno Bee.

The wreck involving three vehicles occurred at about 7:48 p.m.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said a 23-year-old Madera man was driving a Honda Civic west on Highway 145 when for an unknown reason he swerved into the eastbound lane.

In an attempt to avoid collision, the driver of a GMC Canyon pickup veered south onto the shoulder. The pickup was struck by the Civic and ultimately spun.

The 23-year-old motorist then collided head-on with a Honda Accord that was traveling behind the GMC. He died as a result of the crash.

CHP affirmed that the 60-year-old woman driving the Accord and her 60-year-old male passenger were also killed. Another occupant in the Accord, a 62-year-old woman, was transported to Community Regional Medical Center with complaint of pain to her entire body.

All three in the Accord are from Firebaugh. Meanwhile, a passenger in the GMC, a 55-year-old Los Banos woman, also complained of pain but refused to be treated.

Officials believed that alcohol or drugs may have played a role in the incident. The investigation is ongoing.

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.
