California motorcycle accident claims biker's life

Whenever a California biker heads out onto the open road, he or she is at risk of being involved in a motorcycle accident. That's why it's critical that all bikers and their passengers wear protective gear. However, sometimes the collision of a motorcycle accident is so severe that the rider is simply unable to sustain the injuries suffered, no matter what vigilant measures he or she has taken.

That's exactly what reportedly occurred in a recent case involving a motorcycle accident that happened during the mid-afternoon in the Palmdale area in southern California, just north of Los Angeles. A young, reckless driver in a car veered off his side of the road and crashed head-first into a trio of motorcyclists. Of the four people on the bikes, three were seriously injured and taken to a nearby hospital; one was pronounced dead.

The accident is now being investigated by California's renowned Highway Patrol. There has been no report as to whether or not the driver of the car was under the influence or otherwise impaired. However, he was arrested and is now being jailed. It is also unclear as to the relationship, if any, of the man who was killed and the others who were injured.

As often happens in cases involving motorcycle accident deaths, the family members of the deceased biker may choose to proceed with a claim against the driver of the car. Typically, if the family members can prove that the driver was at fault, they can be awarded remuneration to cover hospital and funeral bills, as well as pain and suffering. Additionally, the other motorcyclists who suffered physical trauma as a result of the incident may also want to file similar claims.
