POMONA: Raymond Alvarado, 21, Pleads Not Guilty to Felony DUI and Hit-and-run Charges

POMONA, California (January 5, 2015) – Raymond Simon Alvarado, 21, of San Bernardino plead not guilty today in court to two counts felony drunk driving charges and hit-and-run after he seriously injured two people in a West Covina car crash on Dec. 30, according to news reports.

He faces an additional criminal charge for causing great bodily injury to the two victims. The suspected drunk driver also is being charged with a misdemeanor for driving his Honda Civic without a valid license.

Alvarado is being accused of driving under the influence on the night of December 30 about 9:15 p.m. Police say he was speeding when he drove through two red traffic lights and then crashed into the driver of an Acura Integra at the intersection of Azusa and Rowland avenues. Both the driver and the passenger who were in the Acura were seriously injured, but instead of rendering aid to the victims Alvarado ran away on foot. A witness pointed him out to police and he was captured at the scene.

The suspect has remained in jail since his arrest where he is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 28 for a preliminary hearing. Should he be convicted of this crime he faces up to 11 years in prison.

“This is a tough lesson for this young man to face, but his victims are the ones who have suffered the most and who deserve justice for what was done to them,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Hopefully other young people learn from this young man’s mistake and do not get behind the wheel drunk.”

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.

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.
