A 51-year-old man from Hacienda Heights was killed when he collided with an SUV in Industry, California. The motorcyclist was driving east when a Nissan Rogue, heading west, made a left-hand turn. The car and motorcycle crashed, and the motorcyclist was thrown from his motorcycle.
According to the Whittier Daily News, the motorcyclist died at the scene from blunt force injuries. The driver of the car was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. As of now, the motorcyclist’s death has been ruled an accident. The cause of the crash—determining if it was the motorcyclist or the car driver that was at fault—is still under investigation.
In a tragic accident such as this one, it is important for the motorcyclist’s family to speak with a motorcycle accident wrongful death attorney. Because motorcyclists are smaller and can go between traffic, they are often accused of being at fault, so it is important to make sure a proper investigation is conducted. If the investigation of the accident concludes that, as a result of his negligence, the driver of the car was responsible for the collision, the family members of the motorcyclist can make a wrongful death claim against the driver. A wrongful death claim can help the family members get the financial compensation they need to cover the costs of losing their loved one so unexpectedly.
