Motorcycle Accident Statistics
According to California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), there were no fatalities and one injury as a result of Manhattan Beach motorcycle accidents. During that same year, there were 114 fatalities and 2,934 injuries reported due to motorcycle accidents in Los Angeles County.
What Caused This Serious Motorcycle Accident?
It appears from the report that the truck driver failed to see the motorcyclist as he made the left turn on to Sepulveda. It is not clear if he stopped at the stop sign before making that turn. 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.”
Victims of Los Angeles car accidents injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing may pursue compensation for their loss by filing a personal injury claim. Injured victims can seek compensation for medical expenses, loss of earnings, cost of hospitalization, physical therapy and even long-term care if the injuries are catastrophic in nature. An experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer will better advise victims in such cases about their legal rights and options.
