SAN DIEGO, California (October 15, 2016) – According to an article by NY Daily News, four people were killed and nine others were injured after a vehicle plunged down from Coronado Bridge and landed in a crowded park Saturday afternoon.

Shortly after 3:30 p.m., an alleged drunk driver identified as veered off the bridge, struck a guardrail, and tumbled off. The involved vehicle, a pickup truck, ended landing on a vendor tent set up for a motorcycle festival some 60 feet below in Chicano Park.

The bizarre incident resulted in injuries of severity ranging from fatal to minor.

The deceased victims were identified as AnnaMarie Contreras, 50, and Cruz Elias Contreras, 52, a married couple of Chandler, Arizona. The other two victims were identified as Andre Christopher Banks, 49, and Francine Jimenez from Hacienda Heights.

Furthermore, officers affirmed the driver, who was the sole occupant in the pickup, survived the crash and was listed in critical condition at a hospital. The pickup driver will be arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and causing deaths and injuries. An article by SGV Tribune identified the pickup driver as 25-year-old Richard Anthony Sepolio, a member of the U.S. Navy.

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.
