John N. Cupp, a 64-year-old man, was fatally injured in a traffic collision that took place on May 19, 2012, around 8 a.m. in Norco. According to coroner’s officials, Cupp was broadsided by a van that made a left turn in front of him.
Cupp was immediately transported to Corona Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead less than an hour later.
From the present facts, it is unclear as to how this traffic collision occurred. However, it seems that the van driver may have been negligent in their actions.
At this time, the victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced Riverside County motorcycle accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights.
If it is found that the van driver broadsided the biker and was responsible for the collision, then he may be held responsible to compensate the biker’s family members with compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of anticipated earnings, loss of love, care, and companionship, and other accident-related damages.
Our law office sends sincere condolences to the victim’s family and friends.
