SACRAMENTO: The Sacramento motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law are sorry to report a motorcycle accident that happened this week in the Sacramento area. According to California Highway patrol, a 51 year old motorcyclist was travelling north on I-5 around 11:45 pm when he was involved in a collision and ejected from his motorcycle. Another vehicle attempted to avoid the wreck, but struck the rider in the process. The motorcyclist was severely injured in the accident and was rushed to a local hospital where he passed. Our thoughts and prayers are with this rider and his family.
As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. Whether it was alcohol, carelessness, or failure to ride within skill level, this motorcycle accident was 100% preventable. Motorcyclists can reduce the risk of such accidents, however, by taking a good motorcycle safety course, wearing bright and/or reflective clothing and equipment, and riding defensively.
As always, the Sacramento motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law implore you to ride smart and ride safe.
