Oakland Pedestrian Hit-and-Run Accident on East 15th Street, October 20

Girl Injured Oakland Hit-and-Run Accident on East 15th StreetGirl, 10, Critically Injured After Accident Near Franklin Elementary School

OAKLAND (October 20, 2017) – An alleged hit-and-run accident critically injured a girl Friday afternoon on East 15th Street, according to East Bay Times.

The collision took place at about 1:25 p.m. in the 800 block of East 15th Street near Franklin Elementary School.

As per the article, police said a 10-year-old girl was out of the school since it was a minimum day when she was struck by a red Toyota Camry which was headed east at the time.

The young victim was believed to have been dragged for a few feet before she was left unconscious in the street. She suffered multiple fractures and head injuries and was immediately taken to a hospital for treatment.

The Franklin Elementary School fourth-grader was listed in critical condition.

Meanwhile, police affirmed that the female driver involved did not stop to render aid and fled. The woman ended up in the middle of the street after she slammed into a parked car in the 400 block of Foothill Boulevard.

The suspect then fled on foot but was later found and arrested near 9th Avenue and International Boulevard. Her name was not released.

The investigation is ongoing.

We offer our sincerest thoughts and prayers to the gravely injured innocent girl and her family and friends during such a difficult time. We wish her a swift and full recovery.

Personal Injury Lawyer

Drivers are obliged to remain at the scene after being involved in a traffic accident. In this case, it is evident that the woman will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the critical injuries of the girl. Regardless of their reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law, especially if the collision severely injured another individual. We are hoping that authorities will continue to gather evidence and information and justice will then be served.

The family of the young victim will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party who has apparently neglected the safety of others on the road. The claim will include a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages and pain and suffering.

If your loved one has been a victim in an auto accident caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, we encourage you to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer to assist you in proceeding on with your case.

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.
