SAN DIEGO: The San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law are sorry to report a motorcycle accident that happened last week in the downtown San Diego area. According to reports, at approximately 2:20 a.m., a 44-year-old rider was on his motorcycle traveling westbound on Market Street, approaching First Avenue. A black sedan traveling eastbound on Market Street made a left turn directly across the path of the oncoming motorcyclist. The rider was unable to avoid the car, and collided. The car driver fled the scene.
As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. Drivers fail to notice motorcyclists on the roadway and pull out without looking close enough. Far too often, the motorcyclist involved is injured, or even worse, dies. 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.
