Accident on Northbound Skyway Caused When Rider Veers Into Traffic

A fatal motorcycle accident was reported in Paradise recently. The rider was going along Skyway northbound between Pentz and Clark roads when his motorcycle veered into traffic that was oncoming, according to officers with the Paradise Police Department. The fatal accident occurred at about 5:00 p.m. when the rider collided with an SUV. 

Investigation Underway to Determine Cause of Motorcycle Accident

The motorcycle rider died in the collision, however, the SUV driver was uninjured. It has not been determined whether alcohol or drugs factored into the cause of the crash. The roadway along Skyway remained closed down for over three hours while the scene was cleared and an investigation conducted into the cause of the accident. 

Authorities Requesting Help From the Public

The deceased man’s identity will not be released by the coroner’s office until the family has been notified. The Paradise Police Department is asking that anyone who has information about the motorcycle accident contact them.

Legal Advice After a Wrongful Death

Immediate family members of the estate of the deceased may file a claim for wrongful death if another party’s negligence or reckless actions led to their motorcycle fatality accident. Family members who have suffered a sudden and unexpected loss often have the right to claim compensation. At, we recommend that families who have lost loved ones in accidents speak with one of our experienced and skilled accident attorneys to find out about their legal options. When your family is eligible for financial compensation following such a tragic loss, our attorneys can assist you.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits in California: Who Can File One?

Wrongful death claims can be brought by the following parties in California:

  • The spouse or domestic partner of the deceased
  • The deceased’s children
  • A deceased’s parents (in the absence of a spouse or children)
  • An executor of the estate of a deceased person

It is possible for others to file a claim for wrongful death if they have proof they were dependents of the deceased at the time of his or her death. The decedent’s stepchildren and parents may be included in this group.

One important point to make is that only one wrongful death claim can be filed. This means either the spouse and immediate family may file a claim or the estate administrator.
