When a motorcyclist is fatally wounded by another driver in a traffic accident, survivors have the right to pursue legal action in a wrongful death suit. Family members who lose a loved one may need to speak with an attorney about exercising their rights in the wake of a fatal crash.
A growing number of California residents are taking to the roads to enjoy bicycling activities. Gorgeous weather, lovely areas and a drive for fitness are just some reasons many enjoy biking, but there's also a dangerous aspect of taking two wheels to the road.
Breaking down on the Interstate or getting into a single-vehicle crash often requires drivers to get out of their vehicles near where traffic is moving. This poses obvious dangers that can result in tragedy. Sadly, a 32-year-old California man died recently, the apparent victim of a hit-and-run after he was involved in a single auto accident. As police continue their investigation into the incident, the loved ones of the decedent are likely hoping that the driver who struck him is found.
National data shows that while traffic accidents are down overall, there has been a surreptitious rise in the number of fatal hit-and-run accidents. A hit-and-run occurs when the at-fault driver flees from the scene of the crash and experts say that they often involve someone who was driving and driving at the time of the crash.
