SAN DIEGO: The San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law are sorry to report a motorcycle accident that happened last week. According to San Diego police, a motorcycle was traveling westbound on Broadway around 1:20 p.m. A driver of a Toyota Matrix, who was traveling east bound on Broadway, tried to execute a left turn onto 19th Street, across the path of the oncoming rider. The motorcyclist was severely injured in the accident and was rushed to a local hospital where he died from his injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with this rider and his family.
As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. Drivers fail to notice motorcyclists and execute turns across the path of travel of the bike. 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 San Diego motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law implore you to ride smart and ride safe.
