Malibu motorcycle accident results in pedestrian injury

Previous postings in this blog have discussed the tragic outcomes that are possible when a motorcycle is involved in an accident with a larger vehicle. However, there are also times when a motorcycle accident can cause injuries to someone other than the motorcyclist. This is often true when a motorcycle is involved in an accident with a pedestrian. A recent motorcycle accident in Malibu sent a pedestrian to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The accident occurred around 3:30 in the afternoon. The motorcyclist was traveling eastbound when he collided with the pedestrian. Thankfully, the pedestrian only suffered minor bruises and scrapes. However, he was complaining of chest pains after the accident so he was airlifted to a nearby hospital.

The accident is still under investigation, so it is unknown whether speed or other factors contributed to its occurrence. However, if it is determined that the driver of the motorcycle was negligent or at fault, then the man who was injured may be able to recover financial compensation from the motorcyclist.

When a motorcycle accident victim suffers from injuries caused by a negligent driver, they may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against that negligent party. The lawsuit, if successful, will help him or her to recover compensation for the expenses the injured party incurred as a result of the accident.

When an individual is injured by a careless driver, it is essential to ensure that the victim’s recovery is maximized; receiving all compensation to which an accident victim is entitled can make the healing process flow as smoothly as possible. Plus, financial compensation can remove the financial burden of medical bills, lost wages and other expenses during the victim’s recovery period.
