A 36-year old man riding his motorcycle on the eastbound Interstate 10 Freeway in Fontana the other night lost control and crashed into the back of a big-rig tractor trailer.
The man was taken to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating to determine the cause of this fatal accident. They are checking to see if the motorcyclist was speeding or if the motorcycle had a mechanical malfunction. In addition, they are checking to see if the big-rig driver could have been at fault.
I would suggest that the family of the motorcyclist consult with an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney about the possibility of filing a wrongful death lawsuit because if the big-rig driver is found to be at fault, he and/or his employer could be held liable for compensation of medical and funeral expenses.
