Rear-end accidents on motorcycles: California Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
A 29-year old California motorcyclist from Lemoore, CA died on September 13th in a rear-end collision. The Fresno Bee reports that the motorcyclist was stopped for a red light at Highway 41 and Elkhorn Avenue when a truck hit the back of his bike. The truck also rear-ended an SUV stopped in front of the motorcycle at the light. The truck driver and SUV driver were uninjured in this California rear-end motorcycle accident.
Since this article indicates that neither alcohol nor drugs appeared to be a factor in this motorcycle rear end collision, one can only speculate about the cause of this fatal California motorcycle crash. According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, driver inattention, speeding, and tailgating are the primary causes of rear-end accidents.
Rear-end collisions involving motorcycles often result in serious injury or death, especially when the impact is severe enough to throw a biker from the motorcycle. Motorcyclists who survive after being ejected from their bikes may suffer severe motorcycle injuries such as road rash injuries, broken bones, head injuries, traumatic brain injury, or paralysis. Even when motorcyclists are able to maintain control of their bikes after rear-end collisions, they may suffer from whiplash or other painful neck and back injuries.
The emotional and physical consequences of a California motorcycle accident can be devastating. If you have lost a loved one or suffered injuries in a California motorcycle rear-end collision or other type of motorcycle accident, you may find yourself faced with financial burdens as well from medical bills, lost wages, and other losses.
