Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
Every driver is supposed to watch out for pedestrians and motorcyclists and operate their vehicles according to the prevailing conditions of the roadway. Unfortunately a number of accidents take place every year when drivers make dangerous left turns. According to the California Vehicle Code 21801:
“The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left or to complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public or private property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are close enough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turning movement, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to the approaching vehicles until the left turn or U-turn can be made with reasonable safety.”
The family of a victim of a motorcycle accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim can help the victim’s family with compensation for funeral expenses, lost wages and loss of love. A wrongful death attorney can take steps to investigate your case free of cost and make sure that your rights are being protected.
