Merced Hit-and-Run Crash on McKee Road, February 9Merced Firefighter Injured in Accident on McKee Road Near East Santa Fe Avenue

MERCED (February 9, 2018) – An on-duty Merced County firefighter suffered minor injuries in a rollover collision on McKee Road near East Santa Fe Avenue Friday morning.

According to Merced Sun-Star, the firefighter was driving the engine southbound on McKee Road around 8 a.m. At the same time, a compact car pulled onto the side of the roadway as drivers typically do for fire trucks with lights and sirens turned on.

For unknown reasons, the car reportedly swerved in front of the engine. The firefighter then veered left to avoid collision and caused the engine to overturn.
First responders immediately rendered aid to the firefighter who suffered lacerations to his head. As per the article, the victim was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.

Meanwhile, primary reports indicated that the driver of the involved compact car did not stop and left the scene following the incident. No immediate information was released on the suspected hit-and-run motorist.
Officials continue to work at this time to determine the identity and whereabouts of the hit-and-run motorist.
Further investigation is underway.


Personal Injury Lawyer

Most traffic accidents which involve a driver who flees the scene can be subjected to serious criminal charges, especially when a particular crash results in bodily injuries to another person. Such circumstances are considered as “felony hit-and-run.”

In this specific accident, the injured firefighter may have the legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the suspect, depending on the results of the investigation. We hope the hit-and-run motorist will be located soon, and justice will then be served.

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.
