Fatal motorcycle accident in California under investigation

There are a variety of differences -- many of them obvious -- between a motorcycle and a traditional motor vehicle. For example, there are no physical barriers surrounding a motorcyclist to protect him or her in the event of an accident. Unfortunately, a recent motorcycle accident in California demonstrates the potential harm that motorcyclists face.

The accident happened during the late evening hours of a date in September. According to reports, a 31-year-old male motorcyclist was driving on Highway 1. Reports indicate that a sedan struck the motorcycle, causing it to veer into the center divider.

The rider was ejected from the motorcycle in the collision. Reports indicate that he died at the scene. The driver of the sedan was uninjured. Police provided no other details regarding the accident -- including whether criminal charges are anticipated but indicated that the accident is still being investigated. 

No family is ever prepared for the news of the unexpected death of their loved one. In addition to their emotional response, many families in California also face serious financial consequences due to lost wages and funeral expenses. While it will likely do little to lessen their grief, many who have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident have chosen to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If it can be proved that their loss was the result of another's negligence, they could potentially receive a monetary award. This award can help ensure that they can continue to meet their financial responsibilities, allowing them to focus on their overall recovery rather than experiencing stress regarding their ability to pay their bills.
