SAN DIEGO: The San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law are sorry to report a motorcycle accident that happened last week in the Ocean Beach area. According to authorities, 61-year-old Samuel Hepburn was traveling east on Interstate 8, near the Interstate 805 intersection when the motorcycle collided with at least one other car.

Our thoughts and prayers are with this rider’s friends and family.
As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. Drivers fail to notice motorcyclists on the highway, and sometimes riders do not ride with enough caution. Sadly, even the most careful riders cannot always avoid accidents like this. 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 Ocean Beach motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law implore you to ride smart and ride safe.
