Roseville, California: Intersection Accidents



Roseville, California: Intersection Accidents

I’m Ed Smith, a Roseville personal injury lawyer. Roseville ranks among the safest cities to live in California, according to a Niche study. However, collisions that result in injuries and deaths continue to be a problem.

Incidence of Car Accidents in Roseville

The California Office of Traffic Safety reported 128 deaths and injuries from motor vehicle accidents in Roseville in 2014 out of a total of 1,187 accidents county-wide. While this seems a low number, exercising caution at certain intersections in the city can help lower your risk.

Intersection Accidents

This type of accident commonly occurs when a driver runs a red light or makes an illegal or risky turn against oncoming traffic. When that happens, the person who was injured by the careless driver may face medical and other expenses because of the crash. This is when a lawyer who specializes in personal injuries may help by recovering the expenses associated with the accident, either by dealing with the insurance company or by taking the case to court. Our injury laywers have the experience and financial resources to do both.

Dangerous Intersections in Roseville

  • Cirby Way exhibits the highest number of problems at intersections. It has shown accidents at Melody Lane, Sunrise Avenue, Riverside Avenue and Vernon Street
  • Washington and Blue Oaks Boulevard
  • Eureka Road at the Intersection with Taylor Road
  • Eureka Road at the intersection with North Sunrise
  • Foothills Road at the intersection with Pleasant Grove Blvd.
  • Douglas Boulevard at the intersection with Eureka Road

Master Plan Project

In response, the city of Roseville began implementation of a master plan project. It is designed to maintain and replace existing traffic lights and add lights at intersections where they are needed. It will also deploy message signs and closed circuit television cameras to monitor the flow of traffic and ease congestion.

Financial Damages in a Wrongful Death

No one can replace your loved one who has died as the result of a negligent driver or company. However, a Roseville wrongful death lawyer may help recover the financial damages that accrue due to a death. Such damages include: end of life expenses as well as burial and funeral costs. My practice is one of the largest in California that handles wrongful death claims, so when you need help, I hope you will give me a call.
