Motorcycle Accident Fatally Injures Fresno Man

A motorcycle accident in Fresno County claimed the life of a Fresno man on February 23, 2019. The incident occurred along Church Avenue and Academy Avenue in Sanger. An officer from the Sanger Police Department was in the area and heard what sounded like a crash. The officer scanned the area and found two parties had been propelled from a motorcycle. The driver, a 36-year-old man from Fresno, suffered major injuries. The passenger, identified as the 33-year-old wife of the driver, suffered minor injuries. Both parties were transported to a local hospital for treatment. Sadly, the man was unable to overcome his injuries and was pronounced deceased during hospitalization. His identity was not released immediately due to pending family notification. We would like to send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to those who lost a loved one in this devastating accident.

Motorcycle Accident Investigation

According to a preliminary report by the Sanger Police Department, the driver of the motorcycle struck the raised curb of Academy Avenue. The impact from the collision caused the driver and passenger to be ejected from the bike. Authorities said it is unknown whether alcohol or drugs were involved, and the accident is still under investigation.

Wrongful Death in a Motorcycle Crash

Many motorcycle accident deaths are caused by the fault of another party or entity. This may involve a phantom vehicle that will veer into the oncoming traffic lane or cut off a biker, causing that motorcycle rider to swerve and crash. Other instances where a motorcycle rider may not hold fault in an accident include road defects and defective bike parts or equipment. When potholes, cracks, or upheavals in the pavement go unrepaired and contribute to a crash, the government entity responsible for the maintenance of that road may be held financially liable. When a fault in a motorcycle part or equipment causes a collision, an auto products liability claim may be filed against the manufacturer for resulting losses. For more information on these types of cases, watch the below video.

Motorcycle Accidents and Wrongful Death Claims

When a loved one is lost in a Fresno motorcycle accident caused by negligence on the part of another driver or entity, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim to recover damages related to the loss. These types of claims can help cover a loved one’s end-of-life medical care, funeral and burial expenses, loss of income for the family, lost inheritance, and other related damages. While financial compensation will not help with the grief and sense of loss, it can help you focus on recovering from your loved one’s death without financial worry. If you have lost a member in your family in an accident where you think someone else may be responsible, an experienced Fresno wrongful death lawyer can help go over the details of your case and your options for recovery.
