Los Angeles Motorcycle Accident Attorney Report: The lawyers at Riderz Law have learned of a tragic motorcycle accident in Los Angeles on the I-5 near Western Avenue. According to local authorities, a rider on a Suzuki sport bike was traveling on the northbound I-5 when he was side-swiped by a Cadillac Escalade. The motorcyclist was thrown onto the shoulder of the highway, suffering serious injuries. The rider was rushed to a local LA hospital, where he is still in serious condition. Our thoughts and prayers are with this rider and his family.
From preliminary reports, it appears that the Escalade changed lanes without seeing the motorcyclist, smashing into the rider and causing him to lose control of the bike. As motorcycle accident lawyers in Los Angeles, we see this type of motorcycle accident all too often: drivers fail to see motorcyclists in adjacent lanes and blindly crash into them. There is often little a rider can do to avoid this type of accident, except to be aware of cars on the road and try to avoid riding in someone’s blind spot. The best way to avoid an accident is to be aware of potentially dangerous situations from inattentive drivers. If you or a loved one are injured in an accident we are here to help, but as fellow motorcyclists ourselves, we hope you never need us.
