According to San Diego Police‚ a motorcyclist was seriously injured on April 15‚ 2011‚ in a crash along an Ocean Beach street. The 35-year-old motorcyclist was riding north on Sunset Cliffs Boulevard shortly after 9 a.m. He rear-ended a minivan whose driver had stopped for a red light at Nimitz Boulevard and ended up with severe injuries to his lower left leg. The motorcyclist was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
From the available information‚ the exact cause of the accident is not known. Since this accident happened in broad daylight‚ the most obvious cause of the collision was that the motorcyclist was distracted. However‚ other causes may exist. Was there a break failure? If a mechanical failure is found to be the root cause of this accident‚ the motorcycle manufacturer may be held responsible for the accident for selling the defective bike.
Treatment of the motorcyclist’s severe injuries will be expensive and may also have long term recovery period. Therefore‚ if there is a possibility that the accident was caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of someone other than the motorcyclist‚ the victim is advised to consult with an experienced San Diego motorcycle accident lawyer who can advise him of his legal rights and options. This lawyer may also hire his own team of detectives for an in-depth investigation to know the real cause of the accident.
The victim may be entitled for a compensation to pay the expenses incurred for the treatment of his injuries‚ loss of earnings‚ and for the pain and suffering that the motorcyclist is going through.
