Man suffered serious injuries after hit-and-run accident

Many California residents deliver newspapers as either their full-time job or as a way to make some extra money. In most cases, the deliveries are made in the early morning hours so that subscribers will have their papers when they awaken for the day. Thousands of papers are delivered without incident every day. However, a man has recently suffered serious injuries after being struck by a car while on his delivery route.

A man was delivering newspapers in his minivan early on the morning of Aug. 29. He was accompanied on his route by his wife. The San Jose Police Department reports state that the man had taken a paper to a home and was walking back toward his van. As he was crossing the street, a car struck him, then the driver fled.

The man, who was reportedly in his 60s, was transported to a nearby medical center that was less than a mile away from the scene. He was treated for life-threatening injuries at the trauma center. The accident is now being investigated by the department's Vehicle Crimes Unit. A witness provided information on the driver's car, which was damaged in the crash.

No one starts a daily routine, like delivering newspapers, expecting to be involved in a car accident. However, if someone has suffered serious injuries as a result of a hit-and-run driver, he or she may wish to file a personal injury lawsuit. It would be helpful to contact a California personal injury lawyer for guidance in the proceedings. An experienced attorney can work with clients to achieve a favorable outcome in the case that may include compensation for hospital costs and other expenses.
