42-year-old Indio resident Uriel Monellano Zuniga sustained critical injuries in a severe pedestrian accident that occurred on April 14 around 9:45 p.m. near Grapefruit and Airport Boulevards in Thermal. According to California Highway Patrol officers, a 2004 Hyundai Elantra driven by 42-year-old Maria Jimenez struck the victim as he crossed Grapefruit Boulevard just south of Airport.
The victim suffered a broken pelvis and leg and a ruptured spleen and was immediately airlifted to Desert Regional Medical Center for medical treatment for his auto accident injuries.
From the present facts, it is unclear as to how this pedestrian accident occurred. Was the motorist distracted? Or was he speeding?
The victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced Riverside County pedestrian accident lawyer, who would educate them about their legal rights.
The victim’s family members may file a personal injury claim against the driver to obtain compensation to cover treatment and hospital costs, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity, and other accident-related damages.
Our personal injury law office hopes that the injuries suffered by the victim heal soon and do not prove serious.
