Motorcyclist Dies in Carquinez Bridge Accident

California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that a motorcyclist lost their life in a Carquinez Bridge accident that took place on Sunday, September 22, 2019. The accident reportedly involved two vehicles and did not leave any other individuals with injuries. The name of the motorcyclist has not yet been reported by county officials, and no other personal information has been made available. The collision remains under investigation by CHP officers.

Crash Information

The accident took place shortly after 6:30 p.m. The motorcyclist had been heading eastbound at the southern end of the Carquinez Bridge between Vallejo and Crocket. The motorcycle reportedly struck a passenger vehicle that had also been driving eastbound on the highway near the Pomona Street onramp. Authorities say that the events that led up to the crash remain unclear at this time. However, reports did indicate that the motorcyclist was ejected from their vehicle and off the bridge, landing on a pair of train tracks below.

Wrongful Death Accidents

After fatal vehicle accidents, the families of decedents often find themselves in a very difficult situation. Not only do they need to process intense feelings of grief related to their sudden loss, but losing a family member also often has serious financial effects as well. On top of steep funeral and burial costs as well as medical expenses related to the crash, fatal accidents can leave families without a vital source of income or household labor.

For these reasons, it is crucial for families to get in touch with a Vallejo wrongful death lawyer as soon as they are able to after the accident occurs. While many people want to delay contacting an attorney, the earlier you seek legal help, the earlier your attorney can begin investigating the accident in order to determine whether or not any negligence was involved. This can help prevent liable parties such as vehicle manufacturers or governments responsible for roadway maintenance from obscuring important evidence.

Motorcycle Injury Cases

Cases involving motorcycles can be different from collisions involving only normal passenger vehicles because of bias against motorcyclists. Even though most motorcycle accidents aren’t caused by motorcyclists, people tend to think of motorcyclists as reckless and this can impact your ability to recover the payments your family deserves. In order to make sure that you are able to obtain fair compensation, it is important to get in touch with an attorney who has plenty of experience successfully representing people who’ve been seriously hurt or killed during motorcycle accidents.
