SANTA PAULA (January 2, 2018) – On December 29, one person was killed and another was injured in a traffic collision on Balcom Canyon Road, according to Ventura County Star.

The fatality was identified as 26-year-old Benjamin Lizama.

Investigators learned that Lizama was driving shortly before 4:30 p.m. Friday on Balcom Canyon Road when for an unknown reason his truck swerved off the road and into the bottom of a canyon.

Medical teams arrived at the crash site, between South Mountain and Bradley roads, and found Lizama inside the car. He was sadly pronounced deceased at the scene.

Furthermore, authorities mentioned that a passenger was injured in the crash. The injured party was apparently transported to a hospital in Los Robles for treatment of unspecified injuries.

Meanwhile, the crash reportedly sparked a small brush fire in the area. The fire was apparently contained by local firefighters at a quarter-acre in size just before 5 p.m.

Investigators handling the case are still determining the exact cause of the collision.

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. 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.
