Man, 53, Killed Q Street DUI Car Accident

PALMDALE, California (August 8, 2017) — A 53-year-old man identified as Rodolfo Hernandez was killed after being broadsided by a DUI following a collision at East Ave Q and 30th Street East, according to a report by the Palmdale Sheriff’s Department.

Police say the 26-year-old driver of a 2015 Ford Fusion drove through a stop sign about 8:36 p.m. and struck Hernandez’s 1999 Toyota Corolla, whose vehicle then careened into and struck a 2001 Toyota Highlander. Hernandez sadly died of his injuries.

The driver of the Ford was arrested on suspicion of DUI and is being held liable for the man’s death in the 3-vehicle crash.  There were no other injuries reported.

Those of us at Johnson Attorneys Group offer our sincere condolences to the family of the man who died.

Palmdale Car Accident Investigation

An investigation into what led to the crash and liability is underway by police investigators. As part of their investigation, police have already identified the at-fault driver who drove through a stop sign. This person was also found to be under the influence of alcohol.  They will piece together what happened and will determine any criminal charges. A person who is injured or a family who has lost a loved one may also want to pursue a civil case against the at-fault driver.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the family of Rodolfo Hernandez has the right file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault parties seeking compensation for damages including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income and loss of love and companionship.

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.

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.

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.

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.
