Sacramento Pedestrian Wrongful Death. Recently, light was shed on a Sacramento pedestrian wrongful death when the man suspected of causing a hit-and-run accident, involving a 14-year-old boy, gave himself up to local authorities. The surrender ended a search for the driver who struck and killed De’Sean Rowe-Manns in September. It happened as the teenager walked his bicycle in the bike lane, while on his way to school, along Watt Avenue close to Whitney Avenue. It was reported that the young man was struck by a driver of an SUV and landed on the hood of the vehicle, which carried Rowe-Mans for a few blocks until the driver stopped and laid the boy on the grass. At this point, the driver fled the scene without offering assistance or phoning for emergency help. Rowe-Manns was transported to UC Davis Medical Center and died there after suffering numerous broken bones and hemorrhaging from his spine.

Roseville Personal Injury Accident Lawyer — An experienced Roseville personal injury accident lawyer can give you good advice when you are faced with delayed symptoms following a car crash. While some accidents result in immediate and visible harm such as lacerations, bruising and broken bones, other symptoms may not appear until hours or days later. This can create a problem when dealing with an insurance company if medical care is not sought right away to document the accident.

When to See a Doctor

Seeing a physician right away is a good idea and can help your Roseville personal injury accident lawyer build a strong case for compensation. Otherwise, the insurance company may deny your claim, and you could end up stuck with mounting medical bills, as well as time away from work and other expenses. Having an evaluation and check-up can document some injuries even before symptoms arise. Staying aware of any symptoms that arise later on is important and should be reevaluated by a return visit to your physician.
