For many New Jersey motorcyclists, the experience of riding in the open air is both thrilling and relaxing. Motorcycles have many benefits including better gas mileage, increased flexibility in traffic and cheaper repairs. However, riding a motorcycle also has unique risks because of increased exposure to conditions that could be dangerous if not monitored cautiously. In some cases, even when a motorcyclist is driving responsibly and carefully, the actions of other drivers can pose a dangerous threat.
This was the case in a recent motorcycle crash that claimed the life of a man in California. The man was described by the people that knew him as an avid motorcyclist. He was approximately one mile away from his work when a semi-truck turned left in front of him. Unable to avoid the collision, the man slammed into the truck and passed away soon after. His family and coworkers described him as a selfless person who went above and beyond to help the people around him. He was a devoted father to six children who lovingly nicknamed him, “El Nene.” It is unknown if the truck driver was injured or cited in the accident. The crash remains under investigation.
If someone has been involved in a serious motorcycle accident or has a family member who has been injured or killed in a motorcycle crash, they may wish to enlist the help of a trusted attorney. Doing so can provide victims with direction in proceeding through an accident investigation and dealing with compensation claims.
