Roman Barron and Faustino Gomez Imperial County Fatal Car Crash on 8 Freeway

Roman Barron Killed, Faustino Gomez and 2 Others Injured in 8 Freeway Accident

IMPERIAL COUNTY (March 12, 2018) – One was killed and three others were injured after a traffic collision along the Interstate 8 Freeway on February 20, according to The Desert Review.

California Highway Patrol said 21-year-old Emanuel Uribe was driving a 2008 Nissan Altima north on the 8 Freeway behind a 2004 Toyota Tacoma, just east of Barbara Worth Road.

For an unknown reason, Uribe lost control of his Nissan and collided with the Toyota. The Toyota then overturned on the dirt shoulder.

Imperial County Car Accident on 8 Freeway, February 20

CHP affirmed that a passenger in Toyota was ejected from the car. The victim, 60-year-old Los Angeles resident Roman A. Barron, died at the scene.

The driver of the Toyota was flown to Desert Regional Medical Center with unspecified injuries. The other two occupants of the Toyota were taken to El Centro Regional Medical Center.

One of the injured patients has been identified as 48-year-old Faustino Gomez, of Bell.

Meanwhile CHP reported that Uribe, of El Centro, was not hospitalized. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.


We offer our sincerest thoughts and prayers to the parties involved and their families and friends during such a difficult time.


Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer

In this case, several questions need to be resolved in order to determine what exactly caused the crash. Was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs a factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Did the driver of the Nissan involved show recklessness or negligence at some point?

Once the investigation process is over and it proves that a negligent party has neglected the safety of other people on the road, the surviving family of Mr. Roman Barron may have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit seeking a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income, and loss of love and companionship.

Faustino Gomez and the other injured parties who are proven not responsible for the tragic crash will be entitled to a personal injury claim that includes a compensation for hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

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.
