Common Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Below are just some of the ways people are injured in car accidents in the Roseville area:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents on Congested Roads: Congestion can increase the occurrence of car accidents on the road. The most congested areas in the city of Roseville is the Interstate 80 and State Route 65 interchange. Designed in the 1980s, the I-80 and SR 65 interchange in Roseville is struggling to manage highway congestion. During rush hour, traffic on eastbound Interstate 80 is often backed up from CA-65.
  • Types of Crashes at Intersections - Sometimes a distracted driver slams into the rear of a stopped car causing a rear-end accident. Broadside and head-on collisions are also common types of accidents that often take place at intersections. Some of the more trafficked roads in the area where intersection accidents occur include Washington Blvd, Foothills Blvd, Blue Oaks Blvd, Junction Blvd, Pleasant Grove Blvd, and Douglas Blvd.

What qualifies as a personal injury case?

A personal injury claim may arise when a person is hurt in an accident caused by the negligence of another. The most common types of personal injury cases include car accidents, workplace injuries, medical malpractice, and others. A personal injury can also include intentional acts such as assault and battery, defamation and other intentional torts.

Where are the most frequent auto accidents and car crashes in Roseville?

Cirby Way at Sunrise Avenue has the most accidents in recent years followed closely by Sunrise Avenue and Melody Lane. Other locations in Roseville where there are a lot of crashes are Blue Oaks Boulevard at Washington Boulevard and Foothills Boulevard and Pleasant Grove Boulevard. Douglas Boulevard at Eureka Road and Sunrise Avenue at Douglas also see a lot of accidents. If you were injured in a serious motor vehicle accident at one of these intersections, it is essential to seek an experienced Roseville auto accident attorney to see if bad road conditions and design contributed to your crash and injuries.

I had two accidents within 15 minutes of each other. I had an accident with over $10,000 damage to my car first. Then, on the way to the hospital, the ambulance I was in was struck and overturned and I was hurt even worse. By the time I got to the hospital and was diagnosed, I had a fractured tibia, a torn meniscus, and several fractured ribs. How I can prove what injury happened in the first accident and what injury happened in the second?

In California, when there are two back to back accidents like you were in, the burden shifts to the defendants to try to prove which of your injuries came from each accident. If they can’t do this (and they can’t) then they are both responsible for your injuries and damage. So, if the first driver had $15,000 per person insurance coverage and was driving a car owned by a friend that also had $15,000 coverage, there would be $30,000 available for your injuries from the first accident. If the ambulance had $100,00 per person (A normal ambulance coverage) there would be another $100,000 in coverage for a total of $130,00 in possible coverage. Additionally, if you had higher limits than that of Underinsured Motorist coverage, you’d be able to tap into that as well.
