66-year-old William Dandalides was killed in a tragic motorcycle crash that took place on April 7, 2012, around 12:39 p.m. on Highway 79 (SR-79) near Vail Lake Road. According to Riverside County coroner’s officials, Dandalides crashed his motorcycle into a parked truck, ejecting him into the opposing lane,where he was then hit by another truck.
Dandalides sustained major injuries and was pronounced dead at the accident scene about 20 minutes later. Officials are uncertain whether the crash was due to negligence or an auto defect.
The family members of the deceased victim would be well-advised to consult with an experienced Riverside County motorcycle accident lawyer who will stay abreast of the official investigation and make sure that the negligent party is held liable.
The victim’s family members may file a wrongful death claim against the manufacturer if the accident was caused by a motorcycle defect. The family may be able to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of anticipated earnings, loss of love, care and companionship, and other related damages.
Our law office sends sincere condolences to the victim’s family members.
