Paradise Motorcycle Crash Causes Life-Threatening Injuries – Officers of the Paradise Police Department (PPD) reported that a serious auto accident occurred near Paradise during the afternoon of Wednesday, September 19, 2018. PPD stated that the crash involved a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle. The accident left the motorcyclist with injuries that medical officials called “life-threatening.” The severely injured motorcyclist was identified by officials as Erik Lambert, a resident of the community of Paradise. Investigators say they are working to understand the causal factors involved in this crash. My thoughts and sympathy are with Mr. Lambert and his family during this difficult time.

Crash Information

PPD reported that the collision took place at about 3:30 p.m. Lambert had been riding his motorcycle on Skyway when he was struck by a vehicle along the 6900 block. Details about how the two vehicles crashed into each other have not yet been provided by authorities.

Personnel from the Butte County Fire Department, Butte EMS, and PPD all assisted with emergency accident response. Responders reported that Lambert was found unconscious and unresponsive at the crash scene. The man was placed on an ambulance and immediately rushed to an intensive care unit at Enloe Medical Center. The latest reports available indicated that Lambert remained in hospital care. Updates on his condition had not been released as of Friday, September 21, 2018.


PPD authorities have stated that, while they are continuing a accident investigation, they do not believe driving under the influence or speeding to have played a role in causing the crash. So far, no suspected accident factors have been mentioned. Factors that commonly cause accidents like this one are various and include driving while distracted, defective vehicle parts, dangerous roadway design, and more.

Calling An Attorney

When you or your loved one has been seriously injured, it can be hard to focus on anything other than their recovery. For this reason, dealing with a personal injury claim is often not the first thing on the minds of those who’ve been affected by a severe car accident. However, negligent parties who are responsible for the crash are usually quick to begin defending themselves from liability.

Having a lawyer on your side who can investigate the accident, prepare your case, and negotiate with insurers is vital to recovering money you deserve for lost income, hospital bills, and other damages related to the crash. Even if you are unsure about calling a Paradise car accident lawyer, most attorneys will offer you a free phone consultation where you can learn important information about your case.
