LOS ANGELES MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER REPORT: The LA motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law have learned of an accident that occurred this past Sunday in Sun Valley – an area in the San Fernando Valley just outside Los Angeles. The accident occurred during the first annual ride of the Redline Bikerz – a gathering of approximately 500 motorcycle stunt and street riders – when an LAPD car collided with one of the riders.
According to local authorities, the accident occurred around 2pm at Stonehurst Avenue and Sunland Boulevard, when an LAPD collided with a 27 year old rider while attempting to apprehend him for alleged reckless driving. The rider suffered minor injuries and was transported to nearby Pacific Hospital. Our thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery go out to this fallen rider.
We are still awaiting more details as to how the accident happened, what (if any) reckless behavior was involved, and whether the LAPD was negligent or used excessive force. We will update this report as more information is uncovered.
At Riderz Law, our lawyers represent a wide-array of different motorcyclists – from die-hard Harley riders to sport bikers and street stunters – and they all have their own style and love for what they do. We are the last ones to begrudge anyone from doing what they love, HOWEVER: we encourage all of our clients and readers to ride responsibly. Performing stunts on busy streets with other vehicles (often driven by people who are chatting on cell phones, texting, or otherwise not paying attention to the road) is a recipe for disaster. Please ride smart and ride safe. We are here for you if an accident happens, but we’d much rather meet you on the road, and not in our law offices!
