LOS ANGELES (December 27, 2017) – A pedestrian severely injured after an alleged hit-and-run collision on Denker Street last month has been identified as Maria Torres, according to KTLA and NBC Los Angeles.

The accident took place on November 12 at about 10 p.m. near Florence Avenue.

As per the article, Los Angeles Police Department’s South Traffic Division said Torres was crossing Denker Street with her children when a black older-model Honda allegedly drove through a red light.

Torres and her 11-year-old son were then struck by the vehicle. The woman was dragged underneath the car about 60 yards.

Police affirmed that Torres sustained broken legs, wrists and arms, back, ribs and collar bone. She also had several lacerations all over her body while her child survived without serious injury.

Meanwhile, witnesses told police the driver involved stuck his middle finger out of the Honda’s window and sped away. The suspect is still at large as of Tuesday evening.

A GoFundMe campaign has been made to raise the funds to help Torres and her family.


Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer

Most traffic accidents which involve a motorist who flees the scene can be subjected to serious criminal charges, especially when a particular crash causes serious injuries to another person. Such circumstances are likely considered as “felony hit-and-run,” leaving the victim a legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the suspect.

Drivers who are involved in car collisions are obliged to stop and provide assistance to the injured individuals and to cooperate with the authorities. In this case, the motorist sped away and left Ms. Maria Torres in the roadway. Aside from that, the suspect is also accused of running a red light and leaving the area intentionally at a high rate of speed.

This leaves Ms. Torres a right to a claim seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, 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.
