Vehicle Strikes Walker on Sunrise Avenue in Roseville Critical Injury Pedestrian Accident 

A Roseville critical injury pedestrian accident occurred on June 19 after being struck by a motor vehicle. The collision occurred at the North Sunrise Avenue intersection with Douglas Boulevard at about 9:00 p.m., according to the Roseville Police Department. The injured pedestrian was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition. Authorities do not believe drunk driving factored into the cause of the crash. Police are conducting an investigation to find out how the collision occurred. 

A Roseville Critical Injury Pedestrian Accident and Resulting Trauma

Pedestrians face a significant risk of severe injury when struck by a vehicle, regardless of the vehicle’s size. Higher impact speeds can lead to pedestrians landing on the vehicle’s hood or windshield or being projected to the ground. Common injuries in pedestrian accidents include soft tissue lacerations, fractures, and traumatic brain injuries. The likelihood of fatality increases with the vehicle’s speed during the collision.

Negligent Drivers Often Cause Pedestrian Accidents

A Roseville critical injury pedestrian accident can result from several types of negligent driver behavior, especially at or near intersections. Some frequent scenarios include:

  • Drivers run red lights or fail to stop at stop signs while pedestrians are in crosswalks or stepping off curbs.
  • Accidents occur because drivers cannot stop in time due to speeding.
  • Strikes in a Roseville critical injury pedestrian accident happen when drivers making right-hand turns do not check for walkers legally crossing the street.
  • Illegal U-turns result in collisions with pedestrians.
  • Distracted drivers proceed through intersections while pedestrians are legally crossing.

Seek Assistance from a Pedestrian Injury Lawyer

A personal injury lawyer can gather the necessary evidence to support your pedestrian injury claim. They can help you collect:

  • Medical costs from the fee for your ambulance, hospital stay, surgeries, tests, medications, physician bills and rehabilitative care are recovered. If your injury is still ongoing at the time settlement of your claim is reached, future costs are added so that you will not face any medical bills.
  • Lost wages are common following a serious pedestrian accident because the injured person cannot work, at times, for an extended period. Your lawyer can calculate and recover those losses, including for your benefits. If you cannot return to your job and have to take one that pays less, the difference in salary is added. If a permanent disability occurs and the pedestrian can no longer work, they can recover compensation until they would have retired.
  • The injury lawyer can calculate your compensation for pain and suffering. This additional support can alleviate financial stress, allowing you to focus on your recovery. Navigating the legal system can be difficult, but having an experienced attorney can make a significant difference in your case.
