Family questions road safety in California motorcycle crash

There are a variety of different factors that could ultimately have a role in an accident. In fact, the combination of a negligent driver and unsafe conditions can easily result in dire consequences. For example, a motorcyclist in California recently lost his life in a motorcycle crash.

That incident that led to the college student's death happened in Oct. 2018. According to reports, the victim was traveling south on a California highway. A 43-year-old man allegedly attempted an unsafe left turn into the motorcyclist's path, resulting in a crash.

Unfortunately, the college student died as a result of the injuries suffered in the collision. The other driver has since pleaded not guilty to a charge of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence. If convicted, he could spend up to six months in prison and face a fine of up to $1,000. The parents of the deceased victim claim that though the driver was negligent, the accident happened at an unsafe crossing. Both they and friends have been urging the removal of left turns in the area where the accident took place.

These parents are facing their worst nightmare as a result of the unexpected, preventable death of their son. While they have used his death to galvanize them into action to prevent similar incidents in the future, they do have the option of taking legal action against the parties deemed responsible for the fatal motorcycle crash. An attorney with experience with such cases can help them identify all of the responsible parties -- especially if there were known issues with an unsafe intersection -- and decide on the most appropriate course of action.
