What Caused the Accident?

A cause of the accident has not yet been determined by investigators.

Increased Traffic Enforcement

The accident described above is the fifth fatal accident that has taken place in Stockton so far this year. As a result, local authorities will be stepping up enforcement by monitoring drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians who are not following the rules of the road.

Bicycle Accidents and Wrongful Death Claims

When a collision occurs between a bicyclist and a motor vehicle, the consequences are endless. Bicyclists are susceptible to suffering serious injuries due to their lack of protection. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicated in a 2014 report that 726 cyclists lost their lives in motor vehicle crashes. Motorists are obligated to exercise due care while traveling near a bicyclist as they may enter the roadway for any given reason. If a driver fails to do so, the aftermath can be life-changing. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney in Stockton to protect your rights and secure fair compensation for all resulting damages.

Loved One Forever Remembered 

Serena Standley was a cherished member of her family. She is remembered by those who surrounded her for her kind and beautiful soul. A GoFundMe Account has been created by the loved ones of Standley to cover her funeral expenses.
