Motorcycle crash claims the life of woman, speed likely a factor

Motorcycle safety is a topic that has been covered several times on this blog. Now that the summer months are close and the weather is nicer, motorcyclists are out in full force. Motorcyclists need to drive in a safe manner and other motorists must watch for these smaller vehicles.

Recently, a woman was killed in a motorcycle crash in Encino. She was a passenger on a motorcycle when she was thrown off of the motorcycle. She slammed to pavement and then was run over by several vehicles. It is unclear how many vehicles struck the woman. While the driver of the motorcycle was also thrown from the motorcycle, he wasn't struck.

The fatal accident is thought to have involved the motorcyclist going at a high rate of speed when it slammed into the back of a car. Unfortunately, this is what can happen when motorcyclists aren't driving safely and considering the safety of their passengers. It also shows what happens when other motorists aren't paying attention to what is going around them.

For victims who are injured in motorcycle crashes, the effects can be serious. This woman paid the ultimate price when she died due to her injuries. Other victims might suffer from injuries that can impact them well into the future.

Anyone who is injured in a motorcycle crash might opt to seek compensation for the damages they suffer. Finding out who caused the crash and who might be liable for the damages is one step toward building the case. Evaluating the evidence might help to determine this point so that you can hold the appropriate people accountable.
