California motorcycle accident involving tanker proves fatal

When a motorcyclist becomes involved in an accident, there are few physical barriers to protect him or her, like those in place for occupants of more traditional motor vehicles. As a result, motorists in California must remain vigilant at all times. Unfortunately, a recent motorcycle accident involving a tanker recently proved fatal.

The incident happened before 6 a.m. on a morning in November. According to reports, a 37-year-old man was headed west on a motorcycle. Police indicate that a tanker truck attempted a left turn into the path of the motorcycle.

The motorcyclist attempted to avoid an accident but was unable to do so. He ultimately laid the motorcycle on its side before striking the tanker. He died at the scene. The driver of the tanker was apparently uninjured in the incident.

A family is now left facing the unexpected death of their loved one due to the California motorcycle accident. While a loss is never easy, one that occurs as a result of a preventable accident is often even more difficult. In addition to their grief, many families are unprepared for the financial ramifications of their loss; funeral expenses in combination with lost wages often leave many struggling. As a result, victims -- or surviving loved ones of deceased victims -- often opt to file a civil lawsuit against the responsible parties if their loss was the result of another's negligence. An attorney with experience with such cases can help them fully understand their legal options and choose the most appropriate course of action.
