Fatal Motorcycle Crash Investigation is Underway
Motorcyclists are more likely to face fatal accidents than other motorists on the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, around 5,286 motorcyclists were killed in the U.S. in 2017. Motorcyclist fatalities also happen 28 times more than vehicle fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.
When facing fatal motorcycle accident cases like this, it’s vital to have an experienced California wrongful death attorney specializing in motorcycle crashes to conduct an independent investigation to preserve the evidence better.
Attorneys have the resources to hire expert witnesses, do background checks on the driver, and review applicable insurance coverage.
