Dual motorcycle accident leaves one fatally injured

Any accident that occurs on the roadways of California can result in serious injuries. It may not be surprising that the smaller the vehicle and the less protection it provides to passengers the more likely it is that there will be catastrophic injuries when that vehicle is involved in an accident. A good example of a vehicle fitting these qualifications is a motorcycle.

Truck accident occurrences in California

California drivers are likely to see large trucks on city streets, local roads and on the state's highways. These trucks are busy shipping goods that will eventually make their way throughout the state and country. In particular, Los Angeles sees many trucks because of its close proximity to major shipping ports that bring goods in from around the world.

Overturned logging truck kills one motorcyclist, injures another

As residents of California are aware, state roadways can be quite busy at times. Therefore, it may be easier to driver a smaller vehicle in order to get places. However, busy streets mean that there will be a wide variety of other vehicles traveling the roadway and some of them may be hauling commercial loads. These types of vehicles are no match for a motorcycle and it is essential that both the motorcyclist and the truck driver exercise the utmost care in order to avoid a truck accident.

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit and recovering damages

Many Californians cannot fathom losing a loved one unexpectedly in a tragic accident. Unfortunately, these things do sometimes happen. An unexpected loss can happen under numerous different circumstances. However, in some cases, after unexpectedly losing a loved one the surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against another individual or entity.
