Last month, a motorcyclist was killed in a crash in Calabasas, California. The crash occurred on Mulholland Highway near Las Virgenes Road.
The motorcyclist, who has not been identified, was traveling northbound on Mulholland Highway when he collided with a vehicle that was turning left onto Las Virgenes Road. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.
This tragic crash is a reminder of the dangers of motorcycle riding. Motorcycles are more vulnerable to crashes than other vehicles, and riders are more likely to be seriously injured or killed in a crash.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. A personal injury attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options.
How Motorcycle Accidents Can Lead to Personal Injury Claims
In a motorcycle accident, the at-fault driver is typically responsible for the victim’s injuries. This is because the at-fault driver’s negligence caused the crash.
Negligence can be defined as the failure to act as a reasonable person would in the same situation. In the context of motorcycle accidents, negligence can include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving while fatigued
- Driving while distracted
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Making an unsafe lane change
If the at-fault driver was negligent, the victims of the crash may be able to recover compensation for their injuries. This compensation can include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
