Michael Garcia Gaviota Car Accident on Highway 101

LOCATION: Gaviota

DATE OF COLLISION: Monday, October 1st

October 12, 2018 – A 58-year-old man died days after being involved in a traffic collision on Highway 101, according to a local news source.

The fatality was identified as Michael D. Garcia.

Primary reports indicated Garcia was a passenger in a pickup that was struck by another vehicle driven by 24-year-old Dinara Arevalo.

On October 1, Monday, Arevalo was being pursued by law enforcement. The woman reportedly lost control of her car and crashed into a pickup.

The impact forced the pickup to veer off the roadway, and roll over the nearby railroad tracks. Both Garcia and the pickup driver apparently had to be extricated, before being taken to hospitals for treatment.

Further investigation on the case is ongoing.


We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of the deceased as they search for peace and comfort.

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.
