We offer our sincerest thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families and friends at this time. We wish them full recovery and we hope they will be brought peace and comfort in time.


Motorists are obliged to remain at the scene after being involved in a traffic accident. In this case, it is evident that the driver involved will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the severe injuries of the pedestrians. Regardless of their reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law, especially if the collision gravely injured other individuals and led to the death of a newborn. We are hopeful that the authorities will soon be able to track down the suspect and justice will then be served.

The families of the victims have the right to pursue a personal injury and wrongful death lawsuit against the motorist who has neglected the safety of others on the road. If your loved one has been a victim in an auto accident due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, we encourage you to speak with an experienced personal injury and wrongful death lawyer to guide you every step of the way and assist you in proceeding on with your claim.

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.
