Manuel Aguilar Herrera San Jose Fatal Car Crash on McKean Road

LOCATION: San Jose

DATE OF COLLISION: Wednesday, September 19th

September 24, 2018 – A fatal traffic collision took place Wednesday afternoon on McKean Road, south of Bailey Avenue, according to The Mercury News.

The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office identified the deceased as 37-year-old Manuel Aguilar Herrera, of Gilroy.

As per the reports, police said for an unknown reason a Toyota Corolla and a BMW collided head-on along McKean Road. One car appeared to have flipped onto its side as a result of the crash.

At least one person was confirmed to have been trapped inside the Corolla upon impact. San Jose Fire Department officials along with the paramedics responded to the area and extricated that occupant from the wreckage. That person, later identified as Herrera, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, officials mentioned the BMW driver was unharmed in the crash.

McKean Road was forced to shut down in both directions until about 7 p.m. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.


We extend our sincerest thoughts and prayers to the family members and friends of Mr. Manuel Aguilar Herrera during such a difficult time.


Wrongful Death Lawyer

A forensic examination of the two vehicles, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the liability in the deadly crash. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each party was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the cars, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by both vehicles such as point of impact, its final resting position, skid marks, and gouge marks.

The surviving family of Mr. Manuel Aguilar Herrera may possess the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit seeking a recompense for the funeral costs, lost wages, 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. 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.
