Bakersfield Motorcycle Accident Attorney Report: The motorcycle lawyers at Riderz Law have an unfortunate accident-injury to report from Bakersfield. Last Saturday night, a young motorcyclist was severely injured while traveling on Union Avenue near Houghton Road.
According to California Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at approximately 5 p.m. when the young motorcycle rider crashed into the back of a truck. The truck had slowed to make a left-hand turn and the motorcycle slammed into the back of it, without any attempt to brake. The young motorcyclist was ejected from his bike, suffering severe injuries. Our best wishes go out to this fallen rider for a speedy recovery.
Preliminary reports do not indicate that drugs or alcohol were a factor, but it nevertheless appears that this is yet another motorcycle accident that could have been easily prevented. Motorcycle riders, especially younger riders without much experience, should enroll in a proper safety course and learn how to ride safely and responsibly. A momentary lapse in concentration, such as what apparently happened in this case, can lead to serious injuries or even death. Unfortunately, we see tragedies like this play out every day. The Bakersfield motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law urge our clients and readers to ride smart and ride safe.
