Mark Paul Thompson, 27, was killed in a San Diego motorcycle accident after he lost control of his 2008 Honda motorcycle and crashed.

Thompson was riding his Honda motorcycle when he lost control and was thrown off his bike. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

I offer my deepest condolences to the family members and friends of Mark Paul Thompson for their tragic and heartbreaking loss. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

San Diego Accident Statistics

According to California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), there were 51 fatalities and 1,081 injuries involving motorcycle accidents in San Diego County. Also, during the same year, 246 people died and 13,527 were injured as a result of San Diego County car accidents.

What Caused This Fatal Motorcycle Accident?

Based on this news report, it is not clear how or why this fatal motorcycle crash occurred. There are several questions here that remain to be answered. Was there a vehicle defect or mechanical malfunction in the motorcycle, which caused the accident? Was there a dangerous condition on the roadway which may have caused or contributed to the accident? I trust officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine what occurred here and why.

Liability Issues

If a defective auto product is determined to have caused this motorcycle accident, the manufacturer of the defective product can be held liable. If a dangerous roadway is determined to have been the cause, the governmental agency responsible for maintaining the roadway could also be held liable. Families of deceased accident victims could file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party seeking compensation for medical and funeral costs, lost future income and benefits, loss of love and companionship, and other related damages. An experienced San Diego personal injury lawyer will be able to better advise victims’ families in such cases about their legal rights and options.
