Chula Vista Pedestrian Accident Injures Partygoer

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on October 4, 2010 - Comments off

One person suffered serious injuries when he was struck by Juan Zermano, 23, with his car outside a party in Chula Vista around 1 a.m. on October 3, 2010. According to the Chula Vista Police, Zermano was arrested on suspicion of felony drunken driving and assault with a deadly weapon. This Chula Vista pedestrian accident occurred near the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Moss Street in Chula Vista, a city in South San Diego County.
Chula Vista police Lt. Fritz Reber said that a 16-year-old boy, who was part of an argument, called his brother, Zermano, to pick him up. Zermano picked up his brother and others, and drove away from the argument. He then made a sudden U-turn, drove up on the curb, and struck the victim badly.
The injured victim was taken to UCSD Medical Center for treatment from where he was released after two hours. If Zermano is determined to have been at fault in this case, then he could face not only criminal DUI charges and charges of assault with a deadly weapon (using his truck as a tool to attack and strike the victim), but could also be held financially responsible for the injuries and damages he caused. The injured victim could seek compensation to cover medical expenses, loss of earnings, cost of hospitalization, rehabilitation, and other related damages. In addition, if the accident was deemed intentional, then the injured victim might be entitled to punitive damages from Zermano.
We sincerely hope and pray that the injured victim did not suffer any catastrophic injuries and recovers to his health soon.

San Diego Medical Malpractice Caused by Unlicensed Doctor

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on February 19, 2009 - Comments off

A Chula Vista woman was sent to jail recently after pleading guilty to committing medical malpractice by performing abortions without a medical license. Bertha Bugarin plead guilty to nine counts of practicing medicine without a license, one felony count of grand theft, and one misdemeanor count of “dispensing dangerous drugs” to her patients at her Chula Vista clinic where she claimed to be a doctor.
The arrest and prosecution of Bugarin occurred after Michael Varga, a Chula Vista Police officer assigned to the department’s Special Investigations Unit, interviewed women about abortions they had received at Clinica Medica Para La Mujer de Hoy, a storefront clinic located on Broadway in Chula Vista that catered to low-income, Spanish-speaking women.
Varga’s investigation led to identifying Bugarin as the leader of an illegal medical facility and abortion clinic. Bugarin, the investigation found, was a layperson who claimed to be the owner and manager of the Chula Vista cash only clinic, as well as five other similar clinics in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
