Biker Critically Injured in Orange County Motorcycle Accident with SUV

An unidentified motorcyclist suffered life-threatening injuries in a Santa Ana motorcycle crash that occurred on the afternoon of June 21‚ 2011‚ on East First and Maple Street.  According to the Santa Ana Police Department‚ a Toyota Highlander going north on Maple Street struck motorcyclist‚ who was travelling east.

The injured biker was immediately transported to a nearby hospital to receive treatment. Now‚ the investigating officers need to determine what made the SUV driver hit the motorcyclist. Who had the right of way? Did the Highlander stop at the intersection? Did anyone run the stop sign? These and several other questions are still unanswered.

California law requires drivers to come to a complete stop at a stop sign and proceed with caution. According to California Vehicle Code section 21802 (a): “The driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to‚ or within‚ an intersection shall stop as required by Section 22450. The driver shall then yield the right-of-way to any vehicles which have approached from another highway‚ or which are approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard‚ and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to those vehicles until he or she can proceed with reasonable safety.”

The injured motorcyclist should consult with a dedicated accident lawyer who would assure that the at-fault party is apprehended and brought to justice. A motorcyclist injury lawyer can help the victim obtain compensation to cover treatment‚ medical and hospital costs‚ loss of wages‚ loss of earning capacity‚ and other accident-related expenses.

Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes that the injuries suffered by the biker recover completely.
