Man Killed San Jose Hit-and-Run on Interstate Highway 280

SAN JOSE (March 6, 2018) – A man was killed after an alleged hit-and-run accident on the Interstate Highway 280 Monday evening, according to The Mercury News.

The victim, whose name has not been yet released pending notification of next of kin, was fatally struck after he exited his vehicle which was involved in a traffic collision near McLaughlin Avenue.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said the initial wreck was reported around 7:05 p.m. on southbound Highway 280 when for an unknown reason a green Honda sedan collided with a white Chevrolet pickup truck. The driver of the Honda then lost control and crashed into a tan Toyota sedan.

The truck ended up in the center divider while the other two cars came to a stop in the traffic lanes. The man driving the Honda stepped out and was ultimately hit by a vehicle headed south.

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.
