A motorcyclist on the road faces increased risk levels when driving. Motorcyclists are relatively unprotected in the case of an accident versus a driver in an automobile. Many vehicle drivers do not always yield the right of way to a motorcycle.
According to Victorville Sheriff's officials, a 65-year old motorcyclist was killed after he was hit by a pickup truck the other evening. The fatal accident occurred when the pickup truck pulled out in front of the motorcycle to make a left-hand turn. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.
While there are many accidents caused by a motorcycle rider, there are many that are caused by other drivers. Motorcyclists often sustain severe injuries, including death - such as this motorcyclist.
The San Bernardino Major Accident Investigation Team is looking into why this fatal accident happened.
It would be wise for the family of this 65-year old man to contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney in order to determine if they can file a wrongful death lawsuit and be compensated for their loss, including expenses, pain and suffering and emotional damages.
