Los Angeles area motorcycle accidents claims life of rider

Traveling by motorcycle is a fairly popular mode of transportation in California and other states across the nation. Especially when the weather is nice, motorists can expect to share the road with these smaller vehicles. While vehicles of various sizes share the road each and every day, this poses some risks and dangers. If a driver is not attentive, this could result in a serious accident.

According to reports, , a recent fatal motorcycle accident occurred in Alhambra, leaving a 46-year old motorcycle rider dead. The accident occurred at an intersection during the evening hours and involved the motorcyclist and an automobile.

When emergency crews responded to the incident, the motorcycle rider was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. No injuries were reported to the driver of the vehicle. Though authorities reported no signs of impairment and no arrests were made, the fatal motorcycle crash remains under investigation as police seek additional witnesses and more information related to the motorcycle accident as they conduct their investigation. The cause of the accident has not been determined at this time.

Fatal motorcycle accidents can rip everything away from families in an instant. The loss of a loved one can be emotionally hard on surviving loved ones but can also be financially hard on them as well. Facing financial challenges while coping with an emotionally devastating loss can be overwhelming for surviving family members. Because of this, wrongful death and personal injury legal options are always available to victims and their families negligently harmed or killed in a fatal motorcycle accident.

A wrongful death legal action is brought on the behalf of the estate of the lost loved one for the benefit of the surviving family members. Family members may receive compensation for damages including medical and funeral expenses, loss of support and services, loss of companionship, lost prospect of inheritance and pain and suffering damages. While general categories of damages may be available, the damages the family will receive depends on the unique circumstances of each situation and the characteristics of the victim.

Obtaining help with the financial burden families are left with following a fatal accident, such as a fatal motorcycle accident, is what the legal process is available for. Surviving family members should be familiar with the options available to help them when they have wrongfully suffered the loss of a loved one.
