Rufugio Cedillo and Tanya Shaw Fresno Motorcycle Accident at Willow and Tulare Avenues

Fresno Fatal Motorcycle Accident at Willow and Tulare Avenues, December 8

Rufugio Cedillo, 45, and Tanya Shaw, 42, Killed in Friday Fresno Crash

FRESNO (December 8, 2017) – Two people were killed in a traffic collision involving a motorcycle at Willow and Tulare avenues Friday afternoon, according to Fresno Bee.

The victims were identified as 45-year-old Rufugio Cedilla, and 42-year-old Tanya Shaw.

At approximately 3:51 p.m., the motorcycle occupied by Cedilla and Shaw reportedly crashed into the side of an SUV in the intersection. Investigators determined that the motorcycle was heading east on Tulare, while the SUV was making a left turn from westbound Tulare onto Willow when the collision took place.

The impact forced both the motorcycle and the SUV to slam into another vehicle that was stopped at a light on Willow.

First responders to the accident scene immediately attended to the man and woman riding the motorcycle, later identified as Cedilla and Shaw. Sadly, both parties succumbed to their injuries before being taken to the hospital.

No immediate information was disclosed on the conditions of the other drivers involved.

Meanwhile, reports described the involved SUVs as a GMC Envoy and a Nissan Pathfinder. Additional details on the fatal crash will be disclosed once the investigation process is over.

We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of Mr. Rufugio Cedilla and Ms. Tanya Shaw as they search for peace and comfort.

Fresno County Wrongful Death Lawyer

A forensic examination of both the motorcycle and the other involved SUVs, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.

In this specific case, if investigators finally prove that a party has been negligent and caused the collision that led to the death of Mr. Rufugio Cedilla and Ms. Tanya Shaw, the family of the deceased parties may have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault.

If your loved one has been a victim in a motorcycle accident caused by another party’s negligence, you may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit seeking a recompense for funeral costs, lost future income, loss of love and companionship, and other damages.

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.

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.
