With few details being released on this incident, we can`t speak of what went wrong in this accident or even who is at fault. With that said, we have many times witnessed vehicles on the road unknowingly merging into riders. One of the most dangerous places to be as a motorcycle rider is on the driver side of a vehicle, just behind the driver`s window. Riding in this blind spot can result in drivers being unaware of your presence, even if they check their mirrors or look to the side. The Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyers here at RiderzLaw wish a speedy recover to the fallen rider, and urge our readers to use caution on the roadways.
